About the neighbourhood
ShoreLark by the Sea self-catered accommodations are located in the utterly charming 500 year old fishing village of Petty Harbour, Newfoundland & Labrador and only 15 minutes from the action of downtown St. John’s, the oldest city in North America! Be mesmerised by the massive hills, crisp sea air and of course, the awesome ocean views. Pop down to Chafes Landing for a fresh seafood meal, the WaterShed Cafe or pick up fresh lobster and fish from the local NL specialty grocery store, Bidgoods. There’s Zip Lining, the Mini Aquarium, Herbies Craft Shoppe, Watershed Café! So many things to do in and around Petty Harbour! ! !
Getting around
We are a tiny fishing community and therefore do not have public transit coming through.

Rent your car as soon as you book your flights as they can be a commodity during high season.

A cab ride to downtown is approximately $30. Ask cab company for exact rate.
