Marvel at the expansive blue inland sea of Bras d'Or Lake, located in heart of C a p e B r e t o n I s l a n d . It has three passages to the Atlantic Ocean and the water features a refreshing mixture of salt and freshwater. It measures a distance of 100 km (62 mi) in length and 50 km (31 mi) in width, while surrounded by a lush tree covered landscape and rolling hills. The lake attracts all types of wildlife, home to white-tailed deer, foxes, raccoons, osprey, and many bald eagles. Many camping spot exist around the lake making it an ideal spot for the family who wants to be outdoors and partake in some water sports. The water conditions provide an ideal opportunity for sailing, kayaking and canoeing.
