Destination guide

A gateway to the Bonavista Peninsula

With a proud seafaring history, Trinity Bay once claimed to house the entire British Navy. Today it's famous for its rugged seascapes, Arctic wildlife and huge icebergs. The bay is anchored by Trinity, a historic town perched on the Bonavista Peninsula. With its winding streets, maritime houses and flower-filled gardens, it's one of Canada's most enchanting towns. Venture further afield and there are a handful of charming seaside communities to explore. From traditional "salt boxes" in Goose Cove to waterfront cottages in New Bonaventure, Trinity Bay vacation rentals are a great way to experience Newfoundland through a local lens.

Things to do

Discover Trinity's seafaring history

Portuguese explorer Miguel Corte-Real first set foot in Trinity Bay back in the 1500s. This means there's a wealth of history to soak up. In fact, Trinity is one of North America's oldest settlements. For a glimpse at the bay's maritime roots, head to Fort Point. The 18th-century British fort is anchored by a scenic lighthouse and a handful of cannons. Trinity Bay is also dotted with mini museums covering everything from ironwork to cod fishing.


Whale watching in Trinity Bay

Every summer, hundreds of whales flock to Trinity Bay and cruises are a fantastic way to get up close and personal with the gentle marine giants. As well as humpback, fin, minke and sperm whales you could also spot dolphins, porpoises, orcas and seals. Or why not take to the water in a kayak? While Trinity Bay is home to some fantastic seafood restaurants, it's hard to beat local smoked salmon cooked up in the kitchen of your Trinity Bay vacation rental property. For one of Newfoundland's best night's out, score tickets to a show at the Rising Tide Theatre.


Visit Trinity for spring iceberg season

Trinity Bay is busiest in the summer, when the Bonavista Peninsula enjoys long days, warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine. It's a great time to beachcomb, whale watch and explore the bay's scenic coastal paths. While spring can be chilly, it's a fantastic time to view the giant icebergs that float along the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. Planning a winter getaway? Trinity Bay vacation rentals keep things cozy with blazing fireplaces and sweeping views of the stormy North Atlantic. All you need to do is stock up on wine, cheese and board games.
