At first glance, Marble Mountain in Cape Breton may appear to be a tropical paradise with its white sand beach and mesmerising turquoise water. However, this stunning destination holds a fascinating secret: the beach’s pristine beauty is not a natural occurrence, but a result of a marble quarry that has operated on the site since 1869. Over time, the waves gradually pulled crushed stone into the water, creating the magnificent white sand beach. Furthermore, the high pH level of the marble has an extraordinary effect, keeping the water soft and crystal clear, allowing the underlying white sand to shine through and create a captivating turquoise hue.
Marble Mountain offers a remarkable setting for beach lovers and nature enthusiasts alike. The soft, white sand beckons visitors to relax, bask in the sun, and take leisurely walks along the shore. The clear waters provide an ideal opportunity for swimming, snorkelling, and enjoying a refreshing dip on warm days. Additionally, the surrounding natural beauty of Marble Mountain invites exploration, with hiking trails that wind through picturesque landscapes, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the tranquillity of the area.
