Things To Do


St. Peter’s is a natural hub from which to seek out Cape Breton activities, attractions and experiences whether on land or sea/inland sea. We are within walking distance or a short drive away from some unique Cape Breton attractions and firmly anchored among many traditions and cultures. There are some natural driving loops through the area as well as good access to water. The more ambitious will make a day of it driving around the whole island and returning in the evening. Whatever your ambitions you will want to checkout some of the attractions below as well as at other Tourist Links we think may interest you. And if you are looking for events and entertainment, check the sidebar to the right!.
