Five Islands

Five Islands is a rural community in Colchester County Nova Scotia with a population of 300 located on the north shore of the Minas Basin, home of the highest tides in the world. The islands form an exposed part of the North Mountain Basalt.It is named, logically, after five small islands - Moose, Diamond, Long, Egg, and Pinnacle - located just off the coast.

Five Islands had a lighthouse in operation from 1914 to 1999. It was moved several times due to erosion. The lighthouse has been preserved by a community group and may be visited in the summer at a local campground.
