Neat lighthouse; easternmost point in N. America. Nice grounds and paths. Spectacular views. Be sure to go in nice weather. 1/2 hour+ drive from SJ.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

If you are a tourist you don't wish to miss visiting the Cape Spear Lighthouse. The entire area is just beautiful. It is the most Easterly point in North America. Be sure to exercise caution when out and about. People have been swept away.

“puffins galore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

Just one of the many historical places one must see. The puffins that were being just off shore were a great bonus too

“Rugged and Spectacular Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

The location of the Lighthouse is the most easterly point in North America, and probably one of the most rugged! As well as the spectacular views from the lighthouse, the remaining installations from WW2 are interesting to investigate.
