Discover, Explore and Embrace
Cape Breton Island is located on the north-eastern tip of Nova Scotia, on the east coast of Canada. Joined to the mainland by a rock-filled causeway, Cape Breton Island has proven itself to be one of the top scenic and touring destinations in the world.
Alive with vibrant culture and bound by its rugged coastline, Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island calls out to be explored. We hold our traditions close and it’s a tradition to share what we have with our visitors.
Visitors may explore the Island’s regions and trails, alive with Gaelic, Aboriginal and Acadian cultures, awe-inspiring land and seascapes, exciting outdoor adventure and rich history. Roadways hug the coastline and the world’s largest inland sea, the Bras d’Or Lake.
