Sable Island National Park Reserve

July, 2023

Sable Island National Park Reserve is a thin crescent of shifting sand located at the edge of the Continental Shelf, 290 km southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Known as “The Graveyard of the Atlantic” due to the more than 350 shipwrecks off its shores.

The famous Sable Island wild horses roam freely, and the world’s largest breeding colony of grey seals occupy its extensive beaches. Plants, birds, and insects have adapted to life on Sable Island, some of which are found nowhere else on earth. Whether it’s the wildlife, the shipwrecks or an unparalleled sense of solitude amidst a vast expanse of sea, Sable Island promises the trip-in-a-lifetime to every visitor.
