Plan your trip around our coast and join the locals as we celebrate our traditions, music and cuisine. This is an entire way of life. Participate in one of the many festivals that span the shores of the North Cape Coastal Region. Be sure to stop in at the shops that dot our meandering country roads for a perfect gift by an Island artisan or to fulfill your quest for the most memorable souvenir.

Our villages and communities tell the stories of Mi’kmaq, Acadian and Celtic peoples that live and breathe our Island culture to this day. Come join in!  Tap your toes, catch your supper and experience the life of a true Islander.

Produce from Land and Sea

Our farming and fishing cultures are strong. Fresh seafood – lobster, snow crab, Island mussels – is fished all along our shores. You can easily buy these bounties at seafood markets.  Experience the fun of buying your seafood right at the harbours where our fishermen land their catches. You’ll find fresh-from-the-farm produce at our farmer’s markets and roadside stands.

The Musical Coast

Live music and entertainment abound. From intimate settings like neighbourhood pubs up to the large open air venues of our music and cultural festivals.  North Cape Coastal Drive boasts an eclectic choice of music styles from rock, bluegrass and Celtic to Mi’kmaq drumming and Acadian fiddle music.

Red Sands and Dunes

With 350 kilometers of red sand beaches and dunes, the North Cape Coastal Drive is the place kick off your shoes and enjoy some serious relaxation.

Let the North Cape Coastal Drive enchant you and take you for the journey of a lifetime.  Whether you are looking for peace and relaxation on one of our amazing red sand beaches, or musical inspiration, and to immerse yourself more deeply in our culture, North Cape Coastal Drive has so much to offer you.
