Located in Terra Nova National Park west from Port Blandford, just minutes from the Trans Canada Highway, this coastal community is another popular vacation spot. In the last century, its rich forests, excellent harbour and shipping facilities made it one of the major lumbering centres of Bonavista Bay.
With the opening of Terra Nova National Park in 1957, Charlottetown’s economy evolved to provide services for the ever increasing number of visitors to the area. When you visit Charlottetown, be sure to visit the sandy beach, and enjoy the warm ocean water of Clode Sound.
