Cape Spear, the eastern-most point in North America and home to the oldest lighthouse in NL, offers scenic beauty, manicured walking trails, and informational displays pertaining to the area's history and wildlife. View canons, bunkers and barracks along the trail and recognize that Cape Spear was not always a casual, family-friendly, visitor attraction but a vital part of our naval defense during WW11.
The war cries have now been long silenced and Cape Spear has become one of the most picturesque and tranquil spots on earth. A coastline alive with beauty and character welcomes the pounding surf of the mighty Atlantic. The thunderous roar of the ocean, the view of seabirds soaring along the mighty cliffs and, in season, the likelihood of viewing icebergs and whales from the hiking trails that run parallel to the shoreline set the stage for a once in a lifetime photographic opportunity.
