Jordan Bay is a quaint little village, located on the southern shores of Nova Scotia's mainland. Jordan Bay belongs to Shelburne County. The Mi'kmaq had called the land at Jordan Bay Esiktaweak, which is an ominous term meaning "oozing from dead water." Way back in 1554, the area was known as Les Jardins, which likely transformed into the current name of Jordan Bay. Jordan Bay was settled in 1784, after grants were rewarded to Loyalists. Jordan Bay is primarily a fishing community, and is a productive member of the lumber and agriculture industries. Shelburne is positioned just 10 km (6.2 mi.) northwest of Jordan Bay.

Jordan Bay is home to sandy beaches, fine dining, art galleries, picnic areas, gardens, antique stores, an abundance of wildlife and much more. Golf at the nearby Shelburne County Golf and Country Club, walk down historic city streets and visit the county museum. There are many glorious walking and hiking trails to choose from around Jordan Bay, as well as mountain biking trails and various nearby tours. Of course, simply relaxing by the water is another wonderful option here at Jordan Bay.

Jordan Bay accommodations include tranquil cottages.
