A left turn beyond Wallace leads around the Malagash peninsula. Like the Gulf Shore Route this road leads along a scenic pastoral countryside where green farmlands roll down to the red sandy shore of the Northumberland Strait. Quiet inlets and saltmarshes are rich in waterfowl and other wildlife. At Blue Sea Corner, near the top of the Malagash peninsula, there is a provincial beach park with a large parking area, picnic tables, pit toilets, and an access path to the wide, sandy beach. In Malagash, visitors can tour Jost Vineyards and sample their award-winning wines. The Malagash Salt Miners’ Museum interprets the fascinating history of Canada’s first salt mine, which operated from 1918 to 1959.
