After leaving the Avalon Peninsula we took our time heading West across the province. We spent two days in Elliston to see the Puffins and three days in Trinity which we loved! We were also encouraged to explore the Burin Peninsula and we are glad we did, it was beautiful. We spent one night parked by the lighthouse on Allan’s Island, we had a clear evening so we could see France! Yes, France. Continuing West we stopped in Twillingate which was a lovely drive, we were searching for more whales but by the end of August they had left the area.
Newfoundland’s grand finale for us was the South Coast, we drove an old logging road to get to Burgeo, which is not the prettiest town but it has stunning views of the coast and Sandbanks Provincial Park with its white sand beaches. From Burgeo there is also a $4 ferry to a little island called Ramea which has a lovely boardwalk trail and spectacular views. And finally before leaving Nfld we drove along the coast to Rose Blanche which was amazing. If you only have time to do one (Burgeo or Rose Blanche), choose Rose Blanche as it is significantly shorter and just as spectacular.
There are plenty of gems to be found in Newfoundland, welcoming people and stunning scenery, do yourself a favour and give yourself lots of time to really appreciate everything this province has to offer.
