Cape Breton is certainly not lacking for incredible beach areas. Both inside the park and out there are many options, all of which are likely to please. Situated at the junction of the old coastal road and the new Cape Breton Trail is the small town of Neil’s Harbor. Just outside the border of the park the beach at Neil’s Harbor offers up some great views, along with a couple dining options and a cute – though small – active harbor and lighthouse worth walking around.
The day we were there the sky happened to have some pretty awesome clouds overhead which made for dramatic photos, though not necessarily sun tanning weather.
A visit to Neil’s Harbor is quite unlikely to be a life-changing experience. Still, it is a pretty place to take a break during a journey through Cape Breton.
