The Town of Port Hawkesbury is an urban community located on the southern tip of Cape Breton Island and has all the amenities of a large centre, but with a unique down-home atmosphere.

Robust educational, cultural and wellness opportunities are the heart of our community. We invite you to browse this site for information on municipal services, and recreation and tourism experiences.

Waterfront Boardwalk

Construction has commenced to enhance the accessibility of the Port Hawkesbury Waterfront. The ongoing project aims to provide better access for individuals with disabilities. The plan includes building an active transportation pathway, creating rest areas, and installing new lighting for better visibility. We encourage you to visit the waterfront and take advantage of the new features and stunning views.
