Cabots Landing Provincial Park

Cape Breton Island

Stop in this wonderful provincial park, 10km north of the Cabot Trail en route to Bay St Lawrence, to enjoy Aspy Bay and its spectacular beach.

The area is supposedly the site of the historic 1497 landing of John Cabot, the first European to set foot in North America; a cairn marks the spot, although some historians still dispute the claim that Cabot actually landed here.
