Long Island, Nova Scotia

Long Island begins at the western end of Digby Neck peninsula. Digby is the town at the lower (western) end of the Annapolis Valley, and the start of the Evangeline Trail.

Petit Passage separates Long Island from Digby Neck, and Grand Passage separates Long Island from Brier Island. Both islands are served by constantly running ferries, with brief crossings.

Long Island is famed for its basalt column shores, some marked by yellow sulplur, and Balancing Rock; also for lighthouses.
