Why Cabot is One of the World’s Top Romantic Getaways

Cabot was recently listed as one of the World’s Top Honeymoon Destinations according to Town & Country Magazine. Cape Breton has long been known as a top romantic destination, with naming the island Canada’s #1 romantic destination in 2012 and Travel and Leisure ranking it the #1 Island in Canada in 2018. We are honoured to be included in these lists and figured we should share some of the aspects of the resort that make us a romantic destination for couples and newlyweds! From romantic strolls (with golf clubs or without), to elegant accommodations, inspired dining, dramatic sunsets, and starry night skies, every Cabot experience comes with a little extra spark!


Make it a Twosome 

Perhaps overlooked by some couples, golf at Cabot is worth experiencing together! If there is a non-golfer in your twosome, there is always an option to walk the course alongside your partner, taking in the views, snapping photos, and offering words of encouragement as necessary! With each of Cabot’s 36 holes providing stunning ocean vistas, it might just be one of the most beautiful walks you ever experience together. Cabot’s practice range and greens also offer a fun space to give the sport a try. If looking for something more formal, golf lessons from one of our PGA Professionals is a great option.

Elegant Accommodations

With dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows in every lodge room and villa, every aspect of Cabot’s accommodation overlooks stunning golf and ocean vistas. Complete with elegant touches including walk-in marble showers, deep soaker tubs, Beltrami linens and Frette robes, Cabot's accommodations are the epitome of laid-back luxury. Whether taking in the sunset over a glass of wine, or rising with the sun and a warm cup of coffee, every moment will be all the sweeter with your significant other by your side!

The Inverness Beach

If golfing together isn’t in the cards, may we recommend strolling along the two-mile sandy beach? Located just below Cabot, the Inverness Beach boasts the warmest waters North of the Carolina’s as well as one of the best locations to take in the area’s renowned sunsets. Whether looking for sea glass along the shore, jumping in for a swim, or laying out to soak up some sun, the Inverness Beach stands up as a romantic destination in and of itself. If you’re not a fan of sand between your toes, the boardwalk offers a great happy medium. Beginning just off Inverness’ Central Avenue, the Inverness Boardwalk continues along the shore, with the beach to one side and the Cabot Links course to the other.

Inspired Dining 

From upscale and refined to casual and rustic, there is a wide variety of offerings amongst Cabot’s three on-site restaurants. Specializing in freshly caught seafood dishes as well as local wine, beer, and spirits, food and beverage at Cabot is unmistakably of Cape Breton, all the while incorporating well-loved flavours and styles from across the globe. Pair it all with local live music at the Cabot Public House or panoramic ocean and golf views at Cabot Bar and Panorama, and you have a remarkable dinner for two!

Cabot Adventures

Exploring the local area together is a sure way to make lasting memories! From hiking and biking, to boat tours, paddle boarding, and tubing, there is no shortage of adventure here on the island. But a Cape Breton adventure is hardly limited to traversing the seas or the rolling hills, it also means basking in local culture. Shine up your dancing shoes and head to a local square dance – there is one every night of the week! Take in stunning local oil on canvas paintings at the Doug Fraser Art Gallery, explore nature-inspired pieces at Macleod of Cape Breton Jewellery, or learn about North America’s first single malt whisky at the Glenora Distillery.
