THE GREAT OUTDOORS

Nestled off the mainland of Cape Breton, Isle Madame offers a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Friendly, relaxed and authentic, the island still embraces an age where people have the time to stop and enjoy themselves.

From breathtaking hikes along ocean cliff-tops, to sandy beaches and the lighthouse trail at sunset, you can find your own ocean view on this historic island.
