A spectacular sight of waves kissing and smashing into 600 million year old rock formations. It’s amazing to see the unique carved out shapes and jagged edges that have been weathered by the Atlantic winds. The ocean in the background is a gorgeous expanse which...More

The views of the ocean and rocks are amazing!! Was a little surprised at the cattle guard and gravel road, but the views more than made up for it. Fun drive on the way to visit the lighthouse

Our B&B hosts recommended this site but would not tell us what was there! What a surprise we had when we finally saw it. Not to miss!

Although, depending on the day, you can see for miles if it's sunny, however on a cloudy, foggy day you can't see very much. But it's an amazing site to see horses and cows running free. It's a great view, but not much to do.

We took the car path through the community pasture lands. It’s a nice stop for some beautiful views.

We visited this amazing part at the Bonavista lighthouse and we were not disappointed! We saw a bunch of whales from the shore while we hiked along the beautiful seaside. Weather started out with a bit of drizzle but temperature was perfect. Hardly anyone else...More

A great natural beauty that you can drive right up to for free. About 10 minutes outside the center of Bonavista, you can gaze at the beautiful rock formation that took nature thousands of years to make. It is worth seeing when in the area.

Very bumpy gravel road to get there to see the arches carved out by mother nature. Was scenic but nothing more than a 5 minute stop.

there is no access, and I am not sure this is permitted. if so, you will need some rock climbing gears and someone at top to help you.

AS long as you keep it on a leash. Provincial Park regulations for sure, but more importantly the viewing area is open enough for a dog to get through and its a long drop!
