The most Easterly point in the world, it is a beautiful spot to visit. Vast ocean views and the East Coast trail is near by.

We chose this location on our first day in St. John's as the weather was perfect. The trails are paved and the views are excellent. The lighthouse may be permanently closed but we don't know for sure. We enjoyed reading about the military that was...More

We visited when everything was closed, but would be a really great place in season. The views and walks are great and the gun placements would be great to see when open. Worth the trip

Very nice views over the oceans, a must do if you're in St. John's! It's a 20 min drive from the city and you'd probably need a car to go there.

Makes you appreciate The travellers of the years ago with no fancy navigational aids! Accessibility is not bad but as per the landscape allows it’s not easy for those who have issues walking.

We had a picknick looking out over Freshwater Bay and watched the whales breaching. Then we walked up the short trail/steps and rested near the lighthouse looking out over the sea only to hear and then see whales breaching just down below us near the...More

I was not inclined to see the sunrise; the weather was so bad (as it frequently is this time of year) that it could not have been seen anyway. Nevertheless, the views are incredible. I'm sure they are even better when the lighthouse isn't closed...More
