Woody Island Resort

Certificate of Excellence
The Resort is located on Woody Island in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland on the Avalon Peninsula. Woody Island Resort's uniqueness lies in the fact that you can experience just about every attraction that Newfoundland has to offer - all at one location. This quaint outport fishing village once boasted a population of 400 before government resettlement forces residents to relocate elsewhere in the province. Today Woody Island is home to mainly summer residents and their families who come back to pursue the fishery and relax in their former home village. Tourists also visit the island to take part in the many attractions that Woody Island has to offer including, breathtaking scenery, comfortable accommodations, delicious meals, Newfoundland "kitchen party", boat tour with beach picnic, and a wide variety of activities.
