Kittiwake Coast

The Kittiwake Coast fills you with wonder and boundless opportunity for adventure.   Located in the northeast region of Central Newfoundland, the Kittiwake Coast stretches from Terra Nova National Park to Lewisporte and the surrounding area. Included in this region are the towns of Eastport, famous for its sandy beaches, and Twillingate, otherwise known as the Iceberg Capital of the World.   A short drive east brings you to the ferry to Change Islands which holds the title of the world’s fishing stage capital, and is home to the province’s only Newfoundland Pony Sanctuary. North of Change Islands sits Fogo Island – the largest inhabited island off the province’s…

Exploits Valley

The lush forests that drew the Beothuks and later the Europeans to this region still cast their spell, but today it’s the tourists who come to breathe in the natural beauty of the Exploits Valley. The area known as the Exploits engulfs the region from Norris Arm to Buchans and all 17 communities in between. It’s here that Demasduit (Mary March), one of the last known Beothuks, was captured and later returned to her final resting place on the banks of Red Indian Lake. The Beothuk used the many rivers and lakes that meander throughout this area as highways to the sea. The Exploits River, known as a prized Atlantic salmon fishing destination, is the longest and largest river on the…

Spread throughout the region are 22 coastal communities with populations ranging in size from less than 100 to 2,000 residents, with the largest being Harbour Breton. It’s here in the Coast of Bays that the province’s only recognized First Nations…

Emerald Zone

The Emerald Zone is also known as the Great Whale Coast. Every year, an array of whales returns to this region to joyfully play and swim along the jagged shorelines of countless bays, inlets and islands that stretch from Green Bay South to the Baie Verte Peninsula. You can explore these shorelines by foot along one of the many coastal hiking trails in this region. In King’s Point, the Alexander Murray Hiking Trail boasts some of the best views with its waterfalls, high elevation and boardwalk. A 50-foot humpback whale skeleton is on display here at the Humpback Whale Pavilion, and a 43-foot sperm whale skeleton can be viewed in Triton. Both pavilions give a visitor the experience of discovering…
