Welcome to the town of Rose Blanche-Harbour Le Cou, “Newfoundland’s Best Outport Experience”. On behalf of council and our administration, we hope you find our town one you will want to visit time and time again
First used by French migratory fishermen who came in the early 1700’s to fish the nearby Rose Blanche Bank, our community is one with a rich fishing history and a strong connection to the sea. Its a place where you can experience an authentic maritime lifestyle and enjoy the bounty of the sea.
The scenic drive to our our town along Route 470, also known as The Granite Coast is a memorable experience in itself which offers glimpses of the natural splendor that surrounds our community. Take time to appreciate the rugged beauty of the coastline, its rocky shores, crashing waves and picturesque views.
Be sure to visit our lighthouse, a designated Provincial Registered Heritage Structure that attracts thousands of visitors annually. First constructed in 1871 with granite from a nearby quarry and restored in 1999, this lighthouse is the only restored granite lighthouse in Atlantic Canada. The trail to the lighthouse is part of a unique trail system which connected our community in years past.
We invite you to explore our community. Stay at one of our local B&B’s, visit the local artisans, hike, bike, snowshoe or cross country ski on our trails. Whether by car or on foot, there are plenty of exciting things to discover and enjoy. The natural beauty and beautiful trails are the perfect backdrop for your visit to our town.
We’re proud of our town and invite you to visit and make our home your home as you enjoy everything we have to offer.
Please enjoy “Newfoundland’s Best Outport Experience”, we hope to see you soon!
Mayor, Gordon Edwards
