Eastern Newfoundland winds its way from historic Cape Bonavista to the
charming villages of the Burin Peninsula.
The towns of Bonavista and Trinity once rivaled St. John's as the fishing capital of North America. Today they rival any spot in the world with their simple beauty and honest, friendly folk. From English architecture and narrow streets to wide open seascapes and whale watching trips, you will find many reasons to stay.
This is a land of sheltered coves, sandy beaches and bright, blue waters. A wonderful place for sailing, swimming or strolling down the shore on a bright and sunny day.
Eastern Newfoundland has a network of Provincial Parks. Drive the Discovery Trail. Hike a winding path. Spy a diving osprey. Terra Nova National Park offers a full range of facilities and programs too all visitors.
Local museums and archives trace the development of the techniques and tools of the fishing trade. The hard realities of life underground are graphically displayed at the Miner's Memorial Museum in St. Lawrence. The Hiscock House in Trinity is a a typical rural merchant's house, circa 1910. The life of Jeremiah White revolved around the light in the Cape Bonavista Lighthouse, which he was the first to tend over 100 years ago.
Throughout the entire region you will see signs of a different age. It's all a part of the charm you will experience when you take time to enjoy a spell in Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador.
Enjoy your visit!
