"Chéticamp - Gateway to Cape Breton Highlands NP" Chéticamp by Redlats

Chéticamp Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 77 photos

Chéticamp is a town of approx. 4000 people with Acadian origins. As with most of Cape Breton, we found friendly people, restaurants, bed and breakfasts, lobster traps, fishing boats, a big Catholic church, etc. and here we also found home-crafted carpets on display and for purchase.

Chéticamp also has an interesting island (from which we took this photo), and a beach (of which there are not many on Cape Breton). At the end of the road is another working lighthouse on a bluff.

http://www.cheticampns.com is a useful website which lists up-to-date accommodations and restaurants plus provides a brief history of Chéticamp.

    Lats, it looks like you had some fine weather in Cheticamp! I wish we had been able to explore that island ourselves. Excellent pic of the whale, we saw some live ones close in-shore as we drove the Cabot Trail here!
