Cape Dauphin is a Canadian headland in Victoria County, Nova Scotia. The cape is located on the east coast of Cape Breton Island and divides St. Ann's Bay to the north from the Great Bras d'Or channel to the south. Cape Dauphin lies at the foot of Cape Dauphin Mountain which rises to the southwest to a summit of 334.1 metres (1,096 ft) above the shores of the cape. The easternmost tip of Cape Dauphin is composed of karst topography and has several solution caves in the area, one of which, "Fairy Hole" is a sea cave reputedly linked to various legends of the Mi'kmaq Nation. The Fairy Hole Trail (named for Glooscap's Cave, which is in the area) runs along Cape Dauphin. Visitors to this area should also beware of coyotes and take appropriate security precautions.
