Pleasant Bay
Travel Itinerary for Pleasant Bay & Area

Pleasant Bay itinerary to suit your style of travelling along the Cabot Trail.

Regardless of if you’re spending a day or a month in Pleasant Bay, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia on the beautiful Cabot Trail, not a minute will go by without excitement, adventure or incredible scenery. Start your day with coffee and fresh baked goods from a local bakery or café as you enjoy the truly magical experience of a  bustling fishing town in the early morning. Slip on your hiking boots and take off for Cape Breton  Highlands National Park. Take part in our nature tours throughout the summer, be awed and inspired by the colours of the fall leaves, or discover our winter wonderlands with cross country skis or snowshoes.

Next, come down to where the rolling hills meet the crashing waves and experience the thrill of whale watching with Fiddlin’ Whale Tours. Once back on land, check out the fascinating Pleasant Bay Whale Interpretive Centre.

When stomachs are growling, indulge in a delicious seafood feast at the Rusty Anchor, MidTrail Restaurant or Mountainview Restaurant.  As you head to bed, let the sounds of the ocean and the breezes off the sea lull you to sleep in our quaint fishing town.
