Cape Breton Photo of the Week: Inverness Beach Boardwalk

Cape Breton Living Photo of the Week: Inverness - On the BoardwalkInverness, Cape Breton Island

Inverness Beach. I call this place heaven on Earth. Once we parked the car in a lot surrounded by tall grass, we find the boardwalk that leads the way to the beach. It’s only a short walk to the stairs to the beach, but the boardwalk continues on above the beach. You can only wish it went on forever…


Picnic at Inverness Beach

Did I mention it’s a perfect spot for setting up for a lunch?  On our little road trip, this was our first stop. We left L’Ardoise around 9am and rented a van in Port Hawkesbury so we could travel the whole gang together. We then trekked up to Cheticamp and stopped along the way to admire some of the many things Cape Breton Island has to offer.


If you’d like to keep track of the weather conditions in L’Ardoise, located on the southeast shore, check out the Cape Breton Living webcams by clicking on this link: or simply clicking on the Cape Breton webcams link on the Menu Bar above.
