Belliveau Cove Lighthouse

This white wooden pepper-shaker-style lighthouse, which stands 6.7 meters tall and displays a fixed green light from its red lantern, was built in 1889. John H. Belliveau was appointed its first keeper on February 16, 1889 at an annual salary of just $80.

The lighthouse is located in Belliveau Cove and sits at the end of the wharf that juts out into the harbor. The cove is on St. Mary's Bay across which can bee seen Digby Neck.

Belliveau Cove Lighthouse was discontinued in the 1970s, but a community group has restored the tower and now maintains the light as a private navigational aid.

The large tides in the area cause boats moored at the wharf to be on dry land at low tide. There is a 5 km shoreline walking trail nearby that provides good views of the village, shoreline and wetlands.
