Sable Island in the Atlantic Ocean is located approx 175 kilometers from the coast of the Nova Scotia peninsula. As a result of erosion, the island is changing its shape and position, moving eastward at a rate of approx 200 meters per year. The nature reserve is also known for its wild horses. A visit is not possible without permission, so the island is also an attractive DX location for radio amateurs.
