North Cape Coastal Drive

North Cape Coastal Drive Distance: 350 km View Detailed Map

North Cape Coastal drive takes you throughout a region where pie is made from seaweed, houses are made from bottles and Acadian and native Mi’kmaq cultures thrive. A college dedicated to the Highland arts, a restored lighthouse now operating as an inn, and a museum celebrating our world-famous potato are among the many possible stops along the way.








Ready for even more adventure? Take a turn off the Coastal Drive and explore throughout the entire North Cape Coastal Drive region. Immerse yourself in the lively culture by attending some of the festivals such as the Tyne Valley Oyster Festival, the Tignish Irish Moss Festival, l'Exposition agricole et le Festival acadien in Abram-Village and the Summerside Lobster Carnival.
