4 things to do in Cape Breton

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Over the thanksgiving weekend, I was invited to my friend Brittany’s home in Cape Breton. We did many things and saw a lot of Canada’s nature on this trip, which is why I wanted to share four of my favourite things to do there:

1. Drive along the Cabot Trail

The Cabot Trail is a drive along the north of the island. The views along this drive are unquestionably mesmorizing, the scenery is just incredible. It felt like a mixture of Ireland and France combined. On one side, you can see the cliffs and the ocean, on the other, there are endless woods painted in green, orange and bright red colours.

Moreover, the small villages you drive through are so lovely. My favourite place was Chéticamp, where you can eat at the restaurant Le Gabriel. Also, don’t miss out on the Gypsum Mines. They turned those mines into lakes, which look incredible as you can see on one of the pictures below.

100 per cent worth driving along.

2. Do the Ceilidh Coastal Trail

Another beautiful trail you can drive along! Again, the scenery is just amazing. I feel so free when I see green hills and the ocean. It always reminds me of the trip I did to Ireland four years ago.

When you drive along this trail, you should definitely check out Christie’s Look-Off, I believe that’s where I took my pictures.

3. Go to a square dance

I guess this one is pretty typical for people who live in Cape Breton. On our stay, we went to not only one but two square dances (my first ones ever), and it was so much fun! Just believe me and try it out, you won’t regret it.

4. Eat pancakes at the Shining Waters Bakery

This bakery in Mabou (btw one of the cutest places I have ever been to) has the best breakfast pancakes EVER. I am very picky when it comes to food, but this little restaurant did not disappoint me. The portions are huge, and the price is really okay. Also try their porridge bread! It may not be on the menu, just ask for it – it tastes amazing!

Whether you try the trails/restaurants that I have recommended or you experience the island on your own, one thing is for sure: Cape Breton is definitely worth visiting! The small villages, as well as the nature are incredibly beautiful & I will certainly come back one day.

Love, Christine
