 If birdcall, whispering-breezes and rushing-rivers are your ideal soundtrack – this is your Island. Explore a range of challenging and picturesque courses dotting the Island – and don’t miss the Highland Links in Ingonish, which was rated the Top Public Course In Canada by Golf Digest.

Cyclists will experience some of the most memorable journeys to be found on two wheels. The rugged beauty of our Island, and our warm hospitality, put us #9 on the prestigious Lonely Planet’s top places to cycle in the world. Whatever you decide to do, be sure to bring your camera.

If you're hungry, you're in for a tasty journey. You’ll taste lobster here, fresh from the boat, steamed to perfection, and served at a table near enough to hear and smell the ocean-waves it was recently pulled from. While you savour it, you can sip a glass of fine-wine, ice-cold ale, or a dram of Canada’s only single malt whisky. Either way, it’s going to be some of the best you’ve ever had. That goes for everything we serve here.

Take your appetite on a tour of flavours from both land and sea that are prepared with the same joy and skill that we apply to our music and art. Taste lamb from the hills, Angus steaks from our pastures, and all that the sea has to offer.

Coastal Experiences

Coastal Experiences

Prepare to embark on a new coastal adventure everyday on the Island. With its thousands of kilometres of spectacular coastline, the opportunities are as vast as the Atlantic Ocean.

Music, Arts & Entertainment

Music, Arts & Entertainment

Cape Breton inspires musicians. From our mountains and our shores, we have produced award winning singers, songwriters and musicians, including Rita MacNeil, the Rankin Family, Natalie MacMaster, Bruce Guthro , The Barra MacNeils and Mary Jane Lamond.

This is music that resides in our souls. You can feel the generations of loss, lament, joy and hope in a single note. You can hear it across the island, in little community halls, where the wooden floors are bare from years of square-dances; in large open-air concerts with the ocean waves are a musical backdrop and in music halls, perfectly tuned to mingling the sounds for audiences.

Across Cape Breton Island, there awaits a mix of styles and sounds - from traditional Acadian music in Cheticamp and Isle Madame to toe-tapping fiddle tunes during the annual Celtic Colours festival or a joyous rock and roll pulse vibrating within the Fortress of Louisbourg.

Culture and Heritage

Culture and Heritage

Our entire Island echoes with the whispers of the generations that have come before us. Here before all of us, Mi’kmaq culture continues to thrive and inspire. The Eskasoni First Nation on the Bras d’ Or Lake, is the world’s largest Mi’kmaq community. You’ll discover music, art, humour, cuisine and stories that have been passed down over hundreds of years.

There’s no need to search for history here - we’ve put a bit of time-travel at each exit.
