Chester is situated about 65 km southwest of Halifax in Nova Scotia's South Shore region. The most efficient way to reach Chester, and Chester Basin is by Car. Rental cars are available at the Halifax International Airport from many locations in Halifax or Dartmouth. If you are driving to Chester, you can either take Highway 103 south from Halifax, which will mean about a 45 minute drive to reach Chester (Exit number 8). The alternative is to take the much more scenic ST. Margaret's Bay Road, which follows the coastline and passes through beautiful seaside towns like Hubbards on it's winding route to Chester. As you can imagine, this route is a bit longer (plan for at least an hour and a half), but the payoff are some spectacular vistas as you wind along the south shore of Nova Scotia.

If you don't have a car, another alternative is the Acadian lines bus service that leaves from Halifax along the South Shore of Nova Scotia Daily (Booking inquiries: 1-800-567-5151).
