Welcome to Pomquet, a quaint picturesque Acadian village nestled on the shores of St. George's Bay in northeastern Nova Scotia, approximately 20 km east of the Town of Antigonish and 40 km west of the Canso Causeway.

As unique as its name suggests, Pomquet offers visitors a taste of Acadian culture and history, endless stretches of pristine beaches and unique experiences with nature. See bald-headed eagles soaring on updrafts, great blue herons patiently waiting for dinner in the harbours, white-tailed deer in the farm fields, endangered piping plovers scurrying along the beach..

Come visit our shores, experience the warm hospitality and generous spirit of our residents, enjoy a traditional Acadian meal at Chez Deslauriers, put your feet up at one of Pomquet's Bed and Breakfast homes, kayak our harbours, and "parlez un peu de francais". If you are searching for a quiet, natural and genuine experience – come visit Pomquet!
