Mayor’s Message

Greetings from the town of Rose Blanche-Harbour Le Cou, “Newfoundland’s best outport experience”. Our beautiful community sits 45 kms east on Route 470, along The Scenic Granite Coast. Visit our beautifully restored granite lighthouse, view the white rocky cliffs of Diamond Cove and the breathtaking fiords of Harbour Le Cou. Walk the network of hiking trails with stunning ocean views and rugged coastline.

Our town has a rich fishing history and is well known for its beautifully restored granite lighthouse and original walking trails. Rose Blanche harbour was first used by French migratory fisherman who came in the early 1700s and was first settled for its sheltered harbours and close location to fishing grounds which had an abundance of cod. The Rose Blanche Lighthouse, a designated Provincial Registered Heritage Structure was built in 1871 with stone from a nearby granite quarry and restored in 1999. Being the only restored granite lighthouse in Atlantic Canada, it attracts thousands of visitors annually. Along with the Lighthouse Trail, we invite you to enjoy our unique trail system that connected our community years ago and is a major attraction for hikers and nature lovers! Also, a must-see is the picturesque Barachois Falls. A beautiful scenic 1.7 km walk on Barachois Falls Hiking Trail, consisting of both gravel and boardwalk sections, leading to a breathtaking waterfall.

I am proud of our little town and invite you to enjoy and discover all it has to offer. While you visit our scenic and friendly community, take time to chat with the locals, explore the many trails and visit local business artisans.

May it be your “best outport experience”.

Mayor, Jennifer Keeping
