Advocate Harbour is located in Cumberland County, along Fundy Shore Scenic Drive (Highway 209) on the Minas Channel. Acadian settlers founded Advocate Harbour, and built many dikes along the shore, separating the ocean tides from Barrier Beach. The dikes would recover lost farmland and assure more stability while farming. Advocate Harbour is a well-protected fishing harbour, as fishing and tourism are two top industries in Advocate Harbour. Advocate Harbour is located 230 km (142.9 mi.) north of Halifax.

Advocate Harbour is home to the scenic Cape d'Or Lighthouse, a renowned park offering panoramic visuals of the Bay of Fundy and Minas Basin, and the Five Islands Lighthouse, built in 1913 and located on the Sand Point Campground. Cape Chignecto Provincial Park, an ecological and geographical rarity, offers one of a kind deep valleys, old forests, rare plants, unique rock formations, red sand beaches and sheltered coves. Go hiking and beachcombing, or take it all back while relaxing in back country campgrounds.

Advocate Harbour accommodations include bed and breakfasts and campgrounds.
