Map of Cape Breton

Welcome to Cape Breton!

Cape Breton Island, where captivating landscapes and strong cultural roots combine to create a sumptuous feast for the senses. Located off the eastern coast of Nova Scotia, Cape Breton is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Saint Lawrence and the Strait of Canso in one of the most rugged, remote areas of the province. It's a confluence of beaches, cliffs, land and sea ideal for birds, with birdwatching a thriving pastime. The first Europeans to settle in Cape Breton were the Scottish and French, whose cultural influences still permeate the land. The Ceilidh (kay-lee) Trail, Gaelic for party or gathering, greet visitors with stunning panoramas and the occasional sounds of Cape Breton-style fiddlers and bag pipes. The Cabot Trail runs through much of the region and its changing landscapes. For a taste of Acadian culture, Cheticamp has the Musee Acadienne and in the north end of town, locals sell traditional handmade hooked rugs.
