You have to really want to go here: first a ferry from Newfoundland across the Straits of Belle Isle, then a 2-3 hour drive through beautiful, but desolate coastline and interior to Red bay, then a small "fishing" boat an hour away and you will...More

If you just want to spend the day here, it is worth a visit. But if you are lucky enough to stay for a couple of days, that is even better. It is a very unique experience and well worth it

I had planed only a day visit. When I wanted to book it, the girl told me that an overnight stay would be better because I could see so much more of the Island. So I went for one night. It turned into six. Just...More

It's well worth the effort to travel to Battle Harbour. We've done a lot of traveling and we've never had this kind of experience: a complete get-away to peace and quiet, good food, outstanding accommodation and plenty of time and room to hike and explore....More

For us it was like stepping back in time and experiencing a community 100 years ago. The people on the island treated us like family. When we stepped of the boat there was someone to welcome us home. The island is a visual treat of...More

Yes it is. You have to make advance arrangement as you get there by boat. It is really interesting and worth going to. You do know that you are on gravel roads from Red Bay on. You also can get there by seaplane.
