Port Royal is a Canadian rural community in Annapolis County, Nova Scotia.

It is situated on the north bank of the Annapolis Basin approximately downstream from the discharge point of the Annapolis River and the town of Annapolis Royal.

Predominantly a farming community, Port Royal is also a significant tourist destination in Nova Scotia due to being the location of a historic French colonial settlement, commemorated by the Port-Royal National Historic Site of Canada which was established in 1925. A replica of the original settlement was constructed by the Government of Canada in 1939-41.

The name Port Royal was officially established for the community by the Geographical Names Board of Canada on March 2, 1950.
