Like many before them, the developers of Louisbourg Resort Golf & Spa, were captivated by Cape Breton’s unique charm and character when they first visited the island.

The island boasts a magnificent kaleidoscope of colour that changes as the seasons unfold. Spanning over 10,000 square kilometres (over 3,900 square miles), Cape Breton has contrasting landscapes that leave a long-lasting impression.

Geological evidence points to the fact that at least part of Cape Breton Island was once joined to modern-day Scotland and Norway, now separated by millions of years of continental drift.

So beautiful is the island that Travel + Leisure readers voted it as the 3rd Best Island in the world ahead of more fashionable favourites such as Mount Desert Island, Vancouver Island and Prince Edward Island.
