Bordering Terra Nova National Park, the region has been a tourist destination since 1950s
The Eastport Peninsula has been a tourist destination since the 1950’s when the TransCanada Highway was punched through the interior of Newfoundland. A local writer, Ray Guy, once called the area the Rivera of Newfoundland because of the areas beautiful beaches, lush vegetation, on land as well as in the sea, and the unique topography and geology. Although, for those who don’t know of Newfoundland, be warned – the climate is nothing like the Riviera.
Bordering Terra Nova National Park, the region has a great deal to offer; inviting accommodations; a variety of restaurants; beautiful sandy beaches; and now a coastal trail system to rival any in the province complimented by the many inland trails of Terra Nova National Park.
