Twillingate is an old fishing town in the Twillingate Islands in Notre Dame Bay, off Newfoundland. Apart from magnificent natural vistas and lush countryside, the town has a long history. The Twillingate Museum, which stands in the town’s former Rectory, offers an insight into the lives of early settlers of this island town. The lovingly preserved displays at the Twillingate Fishing & Heritage Centre and the Isles Wooden Boat Builders Museum & Workshop also make for happy browsing. The town itself is a pleasure to explore, with its winding streets lined with brightly painted houses, and hiking trails along the rugged coastline, including the Spencer’s Park Trail. Long Point Lighthouse, overlooking Notre Dame Bay, offers spectacular views of icebergs passing down the vast ocean corridors. Boat tours are the best bet for spotting whales, dolphins, harp seals and seabirds off the coast, as well as icebergs in season.
