Take an Island Staycation

This summer, there’s no need to cross the causeway for an island getaway. Leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind, hit the open road, and be quickly transported to a summer of discovery in your own backyard. Learn about our rich Mi’kmaw culture or try a new trail in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Get out on the waters of Bras d’Or Lake or retreat from it all while relaxing on the South Coast.

Staycation Activities

See what your fellow locals love about Cape Breton Island. There’s always something new to see and do on our Island with 175 kilometers of scenic coastline.
