Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse reviews
Recently visited this lighthouse. Still an active lighthouse, but is located and staffed by Parks Canada. Very interesting story by the staff members, as well as the grounds are nice trails. Worth... more »
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.
