The Town of Bonavista has many sites and attractions. We're only three hours from the ferry at Argentia or from the Airport at Gander, and just three and a half hours from the provincial capital of St. John's.
Take the Trans Canada Highway to Highway 230 or 233 and cruise north along the coast. There are tourist chalets and craft stores located along the route and throughout the town.
Bonavista is a pedestrian's delight. The gentle topography is appealing but it is the rich cultural landscape which makes for enjoyable walking in the community. Bonavista has approx. 1000 heritage buildings dating from early 19th century to 1949, more than any other Newfoundland town.
In addition there is a complex network of roads and laneways connecting the central areas of the town known as the Harbour and Church Street to various sections of community bearing ancient names suck as Canaille, Mockbeggar, Rolling Cove, Red Point, Bayley's Cove and Bakeapple Marsh. This makes Bonavista a superb place to wander.
