17825 Cabot Trail

902-224-2306



The wharf reaching into the warm gulf waters reminds us of the Acadians who once lived near this pebbly beach on the west side of the park.  Enjoy a walk along the coast, refreshing dip and spectacular sunsets.  Picnic area, interpretive panels and pit privies on site.  No surf lifeguards on duty at this beach.

Cape Breton Highlands is home to a variety of superb beaches. Choose between salt or freshwater, or even enjoy both at one location.  The Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of St. Lawrence and our tannin-rich brooks and lakes offer a wonderful variety for the water enthusiast.

Cape Breton Highlands National Park’s operating season is from mid-May to mid-October, with full services in July and August. The Cabot Trail is open year-round. A park pass is required for use of all services and facilities in the national park, including beaches. Revenues are used to maintain and improve park services.
