"Channel-Port aux Basques / Rose Blanche Lighthouse" Channel-Port aux Basques by Lostnspace

Places to Visit

Diamond Cove, Harbour Le Cou and the Rose Blanche Lighthouse are all beautiful locaitons to check out. The Rose Blanche Lighthouse requires a short walk of ~500 meters along a boardwalk from the parking lot. During the tourist season there are souvenir shops at the parking lot along with public restrooms. Informational signs along the walkway give the history of the Rost Blanche and other local history. Diamond Cove and Harbour Le Cou are residential areas with a couple of small shops, fishing shacks, and some great photo opportunities.

Rose Blanche Lighthouse

The Rose Blanche Lighthouse was the highlight of my short visit to beautiful Newfoundland. Definitely worth the cost of a rental car to come and visit this historic lighthouse.

Port aux Basques countryside

The surrounding area is beautiful, with a very unusual terrain full of exposed rock, natural pools, and some beautiful waterfalls. By all means, take a short drive out of town and see the countryside.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful scenery and interesting geology
