The name of the cape was made official on December 5, 1968. To the west of the bay, the Éternité River gave its name to the municipality of Rivière-Éternité.
Its impressive rock mass and steep cliffs make it a major tourist attraction site in the Saguenay Fjord National Park. Cape Eternity inspired painters, poets and writers, including Charles Gill (1871–1918) and William Chapman (1850–1917).
