This is one of many picturesque harbors around St John's but like all of them, well worth the visit. Fishing boats and fishermen working on the dock with their catch was an interesting and enjoyable walk. We finished our visit off by going to the...More

This looks like a quaint little fishing village. It is very popular though so park first place you see. The views are really nice, and there is a brewery, a really nice restaurant and some art shops.

They pack in several tourist spots in Quidi Vidi, most notably the brewery, Mallards Cottage and the Inn of Olde, but don’t miss the picturesque harbour.

The water never freezes here so you’d always have access to the roads. Such a cute part of the world. We took pictures the day after Regatta Day when upwards of 50 000 people came to the 200th race.
