"Random Island" Hickmans Harbour by crummey

Hickmans Harbour Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 9 photos

Snooks Harbour is a very nice place

Random Island is great. Except for the Island of Newfoundland itself, Randon Island is the biggest Island in the province.

There is a bridge built from Shoal Harbour to the Island and on Random Island are a number of small, quaint communities including Petley, Britannia, Hickmans Harbour, Lower Lance Cove., Lady Cove and Snook Harbour.

Random Island has trees, forests, beachrocks and still, deep inlets. It also has abandoned, resettled communities, like London, that are reached only by boat or foot. Today, in the resettled communities, the villagers have every ammenity including many churches, shops a school and all of then roads are paved; right to Grand Ma's door.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:great place

  • In a nutshell:Captain Cook circumnavigated Random Island and named Hickman\s Harbour for a Newfoundland man who piloted his ship.
