Cape Breton Island Sights

Cabot's Landing Provincial Park

  • 1904 Bay St. Lawrence Rd. Map It
  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

This long, sandy beach remains untouched by modern development, other than the picnic tables on the adjoining grassland. It's a great place for beachcombing and pondering the journeys of First Nations boatmen who once set out from here to paddle to Newfoundland. A cairn in the park, commemorating the purported arrival of John Cabot from England in 1497, offers further historical insights, but the jaw-dropping views of Aspy Bay and the surrounding wilderness area provide

the best reasons to come here. Amenities: parking (free). Best for: solitude; walking.
