AC Road Trip: Meat Cove

Gulls Log on a Beach Lone Gull on Rock Rocky Cliffs Seaside Shack

A few kilometres north of the Cabot trail there is a small community called Meat Cove, Nova Scotia’s northernmost civilization. We were feelingΒ adventurous enough to venture off the trail and were kindly rewarded for it. On the way to Meat Cove we passed the small fishing town of Bay St-Lawrence located along the cliffs of Cape Breton, where we saw a large flock of Gulls resting on the docks, and Gannets out in the ocean diving for fish. After a few more kilometres along a bumpy dirt road, we arrived a Meat Cove and walked along the gorgeous beach surrounded by crashing waves and huge rocky cliffs.
This detour is an absolute must for anyone doing the Cabot Trail, and was the highlight of our entire trip.
