Very swimmable water, which at low tide creates warm pools and sand bars just made for water games and exploring. There is a life guarded beach 150 ft to the North.
There are 2 possible launching places for your boat. Big boats @ a mile to the north, small boats on the beach in front of the cottage. Plenty of space to park your boat at the cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Port Hood: The area reminded us of Cape Cod-40 years ago-except no traffic, uncrowded beaches and the Gaelic influence. Cape Breton Island has truly astounding scenery,(We are @ 1 1/2 hours to the Cabot Trail, with wonderful hiking trails and scenic drives everywhere in between.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We enjoy the beautiful sandy beach in front of the cottage, a place where if you're lucky, you might see bald eagles teaching their young. We love seeing the fishing boats heading home in the late afternoon. (We hope they're heavy with lobsters)
