Chedabucto Bay
Stretching from the southern shores of Cape Breton Island to the most eastern point of mainland Nova Scotia, Chedabucto Bay is the largest bay on the Atlantic Coast. The Bay’s 600 kilometres of shoreline provide a seemingly endless array of natural and historical adventures for travellers to explore. From a magnificent look off high above the Atlantic where a commemorative plaque is located to celebrate Prince Henry Sinclair’s landing on the Bay in 1398, to secluded coves awaiting your discovery, Chedabucto Bay’s great expanse enables travellers to experience one of Atlantic Canada’s natural wonders.
