Sandbanks Provincial Park

Route 480

Keep an eye out for the large caribou herds that roam the Burgeo highway Route 480, on the way to Sandbanks Provincial Park.

Sand dunes are relatively rare in Newfoundland, but you'll find them here. These fragile dunes are covered by grass and beach pea, and are easily eroded, so please stay on the trails. Plants and animals that tolerate both fresh and salt water are found here.

Salt water flows up Grepsey Brook to Heron Pond at high tide, while the reverse happens at low tide. The park is also a good place to see shore birds like sandpipers and water fowl such as ducks and geese.

Sea kayakers will find this an excellent place to dip a paddle.
