EASY TO FIND. HARD TO LEAVE.
Several carriers fly into the JA Douglas McCurdy Sydney Airport via Halifax Stanfield International Airport; there are also direct flights from Toronto, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec.
By car, the Trans-Canada Highway in Nova Scotia will lead you to Cape Breton Island. Maritime Bus provides bus service from various locations.
Visitors from the Northeast United States, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island can ferry to Nova Scotia and drive through to Cape Breton. Ferries also sail from Newfoundland to North Sydney.
If you fly into Sydney, car rentals are available or you may hire a taxi or take a shuttle. If you have a car, driving time on the Trans-Canada 105 will get you from the Canso Causeway, the gateway to the Island, to Sydney in two hours.
Road routes loop around the Island and it’s easy to get from one region to another. But don’t rush. Pick up a visitor map and savour your time here.
