Cape Breton Among Best Islands

A major travel publication has recognized something Nova Scotians
already know — Cape Breton Island is a world-class vacation
destination.

Travel and Leisure magazine named Cape Breton the fourth best island to
visit in the world, and the number one island to visit in continental
United States and Canada. The ranking was released on Monday, July 10.

“We’ve known and loved the unique beauty of Cape Breton all our lives,
and with this high-profile ranking, more people from around the world
will be drawn to experience its charms,” said Tourism, Culture and
Heritage Minister Len Goucher. “It confirms that Nova Scotia is a top
quality tourism destination that can compete with exotic locations
around the world.”

Cape Breton is the only Canadian island ranked in the top 10. It came
before Hawaii and the Galapagos Islands, which ranked seventh and
eighth respectively. It was topped only by Bali, Kuaui and Maui. Nearly
a million subscribers will see the ranking in the magazine. Travel and
Leisure’s website, which directs people to www.novascotia.com for more
information, will get about two million hits per month.
