  • Probably one of the prettiest look offs in Nova Scotia. Fantastic area and wonderful spot for not only a lighthouse but a bed and breakfast. Definitely worth the trip. 
  • On our way from New Brunswick we took the advice of the Lonely Planet and headed for what turned out to be a 4 hour detour to Cap D'or and what a great decision that was. Despite being a little diffic...  read more »
  • Great views from the parking lot, but the trail it is a fairly steep, rough 0.2 mile hike down and back. Not a problem for young folks, but not recommended for us geezers. 
  • Talk about unique! You drive on unpaved roads, walk down a steep lane to the lighthouse and restaurant and sit and watch the tides. We had great food, friendly service and sat and played cards for a couple of hours. It was worth every bit of effort to get there. This was our favorite part of the area!
  • Its a long steep walk down after a long dirt road drive. The sign says open but the cafe is closed. Walk down anyway. The cliff views are incredible.
  • We have visited the restaurant three times it was an amazing dining experience each time we went. The scenery is breathtaking, the food was awesome and the vibe is truly unique. It's kind of like going to a best friend's place for a dinner party. It's very casual, very interactive and everybody talks to each other across the table - even though we've never met! One time, after the main course was served, the owner took everybody who wanted to go out for a tour... the rest of us walked around the restaurant, drinking wine, enjoying the view and each others' company. We took guests twice and it was the highlight of their Maritime adventure.
  • Nice drive and a decent hike, the views are incredible
  • Amazing view of the lighthouse, bay of Fundy and rock formations. It is worth climbing back up to the parking lot.
