The islands provide an excellent sheltered harbour and easy access to the rich fishing grounds nearby. In recent years, a causeway named after Walter B. Elliot was built, which connects it to the mainland via New World Island. Labeled as “The Iceberg Capital of the World”, the town is one of the oldest ports on the island.

For many visitors, a leisurely stroll to The Anchor Pub in Rocky Harbour is a defining moment of their trip. Here, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday night during the summer, a group of five local performers gets together to entertain tourists and locals alike with a rousing three-hour show.

Filled with renditions of popular Newfoundland and Labrador songs, and sprinkled with wit and one-liners, the show has become one of the best attended in the whole province. Almost by accident, and practically overnight, the Anchors Aweigh band has found its way onto the list of ‘things to do’ for local residents and visitors alike.

The history of the Cabot Trail is a long and interesting one. The trail was named after Italian explorer John Cabot (Giovanni Caboto) who reached our shores in 1497, sailing on a mission for King Henry VII of England. The name also celebrates the meeting of Cabot and the Mi’kmaq people, the original inhabitants of Cape Breton Island, at Aspy Bay over 500 years ago.

The Cabot Trail, completed in 1932, joined previously isolated fishing villages along an approximate 300-kilometre loop. Today the Cabot Trail connects eight major communities with intriguing histories, ranging from the Acadian Region to Irish and Scottish settlements.
