This is an almost island; an extraordinary geological formation that extends boldly into the Bras d'Or Lakes for a distance of 1.8 miles off South Side Boularderie. Island Point is a wild, remote and uninhabited peninsula only 30 minutes from N. Sydney. The land has the typical Karst topography of eroded hills and valleys, but is resplendent with a hardwood forest that covers the entire length of the Point. Its sheer white gypsum cliffs protect a long harbour while the shore is interspersed with beaches and nearly 40 foot depths almost all the way to the sand bar end. The elbow shaped connection to the Boularderie Island shore leads up a steep pitch covered with large firs to the road’s edge at the top of a ridge. 3.6 miles of shoreline, 252 acres, sand beaches, protected anchorages and wilderness character - this property is very special. Following several exploratory trips, it is now apparent that the topography is probably stable enough to drive a road through to the NE end where one of the widest areas is located. Contrary to local beliefs, there are no sink holes on the peninsula. Gypsum tailings and dug holes seen here and there are the result of manual mining that was done just prior to World War II. A trail runs from the road through some of the property. Seeing the whole acreage from Kempt Head road to the tip of the point and back again would be approximately a 5 mile walk. With a good pair of walking shoes and stamina, you can see it all.
