We rented a car and drive the 15 minutes from St Johns. This place was truly amazing, the natural beauty and power of the waves was awe inspiring! It is the most easterly point in the continent.

Stopped by here. Great place for a hike. It was windy and cool this time year. Have to watch for ice on the trail. Lots of information signs along the way. Definitely worth the visit to learn and see.

It’s worth a stop even for 30 minutes. We were there on a windy day in October. All the buildings were closed for the season, but it was well worth the visit to walk around and watch the waves. There was a lower parking lot... More
