Map of Eastern Region in Newfoundland, Canada
Eastern Newfoundland | Travel & Tourism Information Guide
Eastern Newfoundland winds its way along the Discovery Trail from historic Cape Bonavista to the charming villages along Heritage Run on the Burin Peninsula, and beyond to a little bit of France. It is a delightful stretch of small communities, alive with the distinctive accents that characterize its Old World History. The Southern Newfoundland Seamen's Museum in Grand Bank interprets the region's age-old relationship with the sea. You can explore villages established during the expansion of the British migratory fishery in the 16th century and be entertained by the lilt of the language and the rich and colourful colloquialisms. The people, the language, and the beautiful surroundings are all part of the charm of a visit to this region of Newfoundland and Labrador.
This is a land of sheltered coves, sandy beaches, and bright blue waters. A wonderful place for sailing, swimming, or strolling along the shore on a bright and sunny day. All to be enjoyed through a network of provincial parks. The towns of Bonavista and Trinity once rivalled 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.
