  • The lighthouse museum was closed for season/Covid when we went but we enjoyed an hour walking around the lighthouse trails, taking pictures, and enjoying the scenery overlooking Rocky Harbour.  more »

  • A gorgeous spot, easy to get to, with an informative bit of history on what it was like to be a lighthouse keeper. If you have not yet been north it gives you a good sense of just how rugged Newfoundland can be. Bear Cove also offers a lot of amenities that will be a bit more sparse going north.
  • Ample parking space. Good scenic views just walking from the parking lot to the lighthouse. Trails around the lighthouse were well-marked. Trail path seemed well-maintained. Great views from the lookouts.
