Hunts Point is a small community situated alongside the scenic Lighthouse Route, on the southern shores of Nova Scotia's mainland, just 51.7 km (32.1 mi.) southwest of Lunenburg. Hunts Point, of Queens County, takes its name from Deacon Samuel Hunt. In 1788, Deacon was given a grant for the land, but in 1813, a group of Germans bought the land. It wasn't until 1874, that Hunts Point received its first postal way office, and as the town grew and new buildings were constructed, such as churches and schools, the way office eventually was replaced with a new post office in 1965. Today, main industries in Hunts Point are both agriculture and fishing.

Hunts Point offers a perfect getaway at any of the nearby beaches, which include white sand and swimmable waters. Activities in and around Hunts Point include kayaking, scuba-diving and snorkelling, bird-watching, walking tours, hiking, golfing, cycling, and visiting the historical nearby communities of both Liverpool and Lunenburg.
