Ballantyne's Cove is a community in Antigonish County, Nova Scotia, Canada, lying on Ballantynes Cove (Nova Scotia), at the north-western end of St. George's Bay.
Ballantyne's Cove, Cape George and Livingstone Cove encompass the area locally designated as "The Cape."
The community and cove are named for one of its early settlers, David Ballantyne, a lowland Scotchman and British soldier who served in the 82nd regiment during the American Revolution and who received a grant for military service. He settled in the area around 1810, taking up 1000 acres of land on the south side of the cape. He died in 1840.
Ballantyne's Cove has a port (a principal trading point for Japanese merchants looking for sushi-grade Atlantic bluefin tuna) that hosts a 40 slip marina and the Ballantyne's Cove Tuna Interpretive Centre as well as Ballantyne's Cove Beach.
