Ingonish, on the world famous Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.
Welcome to the rugged headlands, sandy beaches, lush green valleys and wild, open barrens… a destination point for all ages in all seasons and the starting point for your adventure into the Cape Breton Highlands.
The area known as Ingonish is actually a cluster of five small communities on the Cabot Trail, nestled between the National Park, Highlands and Atlantic Ocean. It consists of Ingonish Ferry in the South followed by Ingonish Harbour, Ingonish Beach, Ingonish Centre, and ends with Ingonish in the North. From start to finish the area covers only 16 kilometers, so no matter where you stay in Ingonish, you are only minutes away from all recreation and services.
Much of the Ingonish area borders the 950 square km Cape Breton Highlands National Park which contains campgrounds, look-offs, picnic sites, beaches and hiking trails.
The area offers both saltwater and freshwater fishing with ocean charters available. The multitude of lakes, ponds and rivers provide excellent salmon and trout fishing from June 1st thru early October.
