St Margaret's Bay opens south directly onto the Atlantic Ocean, its eastern shore is formed by the Chebucto Peninsular to the West by the Aspotogan Peninsular, with the head of the bay (the northern shore) being the main part of the Nova Scotia Peninsular.

The shores of St Margaret's Bay are mostly rocky, although at the head of the bay can be found several sandy beaches at Queensland, Black Point and Cleveland; another sandy beach exists on the western shore of the bay at Bayswater; and there is a small sandy beach on eastern shore on Micou's Island. St. Margarets Bay is a cruising destination for sailing yachts and its picturesque shorelines offer protection in many natural harbours, as well as anchorages in coves and near small islands.
