My family and I will be in Cape Breton Island for about 8 days end of June/early July. We are staying in Cheticamp for the first 4 nights, after that it is open. We plan to drive the Cabot Trail and do plenty of hiking. For those of you who have traveled here, are there any swimming spots that are a must see? Waterfalls?
My other question is with the remaining few days after we leave Cheticamp, I'm wondering if we should drive around the rest of the area and check out Sydney or Halifax, or even check out PEI. Again, it would only be for about 3-4 more days. We are traveling with my 9 year old son. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
