FIND YOURSELF IN NEWFOUNDLAND

You come to Newfoundland and Labrador not just to see the wild shore or do stuff or kiss the cod. You come to  Newfoundland and Labrador to find yourself.  Yes, you will see whales and cod and icebergs and moose and rocks and rolling hills and trees and berries and you will hear music, yes music, everywhere there is music. 

And then you will meet the people... these kind, funny, generous, gregarious people will heal your wounded soul.

Visit us at Seabreeze Cottages where the ordinary meets the extraordinary.

Northern Bay Sands Beach

Northern Bay Sands Park and Beach is 15 minutes drive from Seabreeze Cottages.  The drive along the shore may be worth the trip itself. It is one of the few sandy beaches in the province. The ocean is lovely but most people swim and play in the river and fresh water pools.  Play volleyball on the beach, have a cook up, listen to birds or feel the breeze, alive on your skin.

Salmon Cove Sands Beach

Salmon Cove Sands Park and Beach is 10 minutes drive from Seabreeze Cottages. Another lovely sandy beach with inspiring cliff side vistas. 

The Trail of the Eagles is about 2.5 km, above the beach in the woods.  Known for the chance of viewing eagles, there are also  a plethora of blueberry bushes so if you go during blueberry season, you'll have fun picking blueberries as well as hiking. The hike isn't too challenging except going up the stairs in the beginning as they are steep.

Pro Tip: Wear bug spray.. you are in the woods.
