North Cape is located on the most northwestly point of land on Prince Edward Island. It overlooks where the waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence meet that of the Northumberland Strait. It’s a beautiful location that is certainly worth a visit if you’re on the island.
The fantastic view is one attraction, but the large wind farm certainly grabs the attention. The North Cape Interpretive Centre houses a restaurant, gift shop, information centre and museum/local history centre.
On one of the information panels at the Interpretive Centre are the names of the eight Acadian families that settled the area, including the community of Tignish, which is a wee bit south of the facility.
The recorded names are: Arsenault, Bernard, Chiasson, Doucette, Gaudette, DesRoches, Poirier and Richard.
