During a visit to Bonavista Peninsula, team members Adrian Brijbassi and Julia Pelish were awestruck by the region’s tremendous tourism offerings. Here are just two article excerpts that reveal the authentic finds you will discover in this part of rural Newfoundland.

Rugged Beauty Boat Tours by Adrian Brijbassi: “Meet Bruce Miller. He lives here, in the land of his father and grandfather, a remote swath of territory with enough arable acreage, clean air, pristine water, and wildlife to inspire poetry and instill a will to depart only upon a last breath. A thoughtful Canadian, Miller flies the flag of Newfoundland outside his home, a small cabin overlooking British Harbour and Trinity Bay at the edge of the continent. In an island of Baymen and Townies, Miller is Bayman to the core, with a lilt in his brogue and a ready wink to go with his easy smile. He makes a meagre living as a fisherman and labourer and augments his income operating one of the most unique and riveting tours in Canada, taking visitors to communities affected by Newfoundland’s controversial resettlement. The itinerary includes a stop in his own home, for a cup of tea.”

Bonavista Social Club (ranked 26th on the 2013 Top 50 Restaurants Guide) by Adrian Brijbassi: “From the terrace of the delightful restaurant called the Bonavista Social Club, you can watch the waves of the Atlantic Ocean lap along in an endless rush past the rugged cliffs of the province’s eastern coast. In late spring and early summer, whales and icebergs are among the distractions between you and the horizon. In other parts of the world, the setting would be home to something grand — a country manor, or a French Laundry-style multi-diamond retreat, or a luxury boutique property that can double as a film set in a Hollywood minute. The Bonavista Social Club could be many things opulent. But it is none of them. What Hayes and her husband, Shane, have opened up is wonderfully accessible to everyone, making it oh-so Newfoundland.”
