The town of Twillingate is composed of two or three islands all joined by causeways.

The names of the two main islands are North & South Twillingate Island.

Twillingate has long-played host to French fishing fleets and was only settled by the English in the mid-1770's.

Twillingate began as a fishing port and remains a vibrant seaport from where fishing and touring boats operate.

The town has a mere 2000 people but boasts six churches, a dozen breakfasts, a shipyard, two bars, a RCMP detatchment, a hospital and a deep-fried chicken outlet.

There are roads to Twillingate but the most enjoyable way to get there is by pleasure craft. There are many docks for visitors to moor their boats at and wharfage fees are reasonable.

A must-see is the Long Point lighthouse, which is near Crow Point.
