Prospect is a Canadian coastal community on the Chebucto Peninsula in Halifax Regional Municipality, Nova Scotia, Canada.

It borders the Atlantic Ocean approximately 23 kilometres southwest of Halifax off the Prospect Road (Route 333).

In 2003, the town was hit by the eye of Hurricane Juan. Wind damage was substantial and storm surge washed away many wharfs and stages, but no homes. The area suffered significant land erosion due to the impact.
