Shag Harbour is between Cape Sable Island and Woods Harbour at left end of line above. For some reason it isn't shown on this provincial map.

From Yarmouth take Highway 103 south to Pubnico. Turn off and follw signs to Lower east Pubnico and continue on to Shag Harbour. You will travel through a few communities, usually along the coast, such as Lower east Pubnico, Upper Woods harbour, Woods harbour and Lower Woods Harbour-Shag Harbour is the next community east from Lr. Woods harbour.The distance is about 30 miles (50 kilometers) from Yarmouth to Shag Harbour.

From Halifax/Dartmouth take highway 103 to Barringtom Passage. Turn onto Highway No. 3 and follow that for about 15 miles through Barrington Passage, past Cape Sable Island to Shag Harbour. This route is the most history filled where Shag Harbour Is concerned because of it's association with the Shag Harbour UFO Incident. The RCMP was/is based in Barrington and Cape Sable island is the location of Clark's Harbour from which the Coast Guard Cutter 101 was deployed to the incident site on the evening of October 4, 1967.
