We stopped here for 20 minutes on our bus trip. The area's geology was spectacular as well as the coastal views. Well worth a stop.

Unusual water and rock formation. Short drive from the main road driving through fields with horses and cows. Does not take long to see the sight, we watched whales from the shore too.Well worth seeing.

The road in is rough, so take your time. Worth the effort, however. Dungeon is well named. Lots of scenic vistas to observe and photograph.

absolutely amazing, mind-boggling natural site! rocks 500-600 million years old - hard to fathom. little off-the-beaten track, but well worth the short drive to get there. 360-degree spectacular scenery. one of my favorite stops in Bonavista -- don't miss it!!

This is a fun our of the way view of a unique rock formation. Coming from Bonavista direction it is easy to miss. The road in is gravely and rough, but worth the effort.

A short drive out a dirt road from the Cape Bonavista Lighthouse. It is worth the drive to see the amazing rock formations.

We were recently here for a visit and got lucky enough to see a beach full of capelins flopping around. The park has some great views, free-roaming ponies and nice hiking trails.

Easy addition to your trip to the Boavista lighthouse and definite must do if you're already visiting the area. The area is somewhat small as it features just the the one "dungeon", but it's quite interesting none the less. There are several different pull out...More

Well worth the diversion on a gravel road. If we had more time on our whirlwind tour, I could easily see sitting and being mesmerized by the incoming waves.

A nice geologic phenomenon, down a dirt road off the coast highway, worth 15 or 20 minutes of your time. Go.

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!
