Rte 360 runs 130km through the center of the province to the south coast. It's a long way down to the first settlements at the end of Bay d'Espoir, a gentle fjord. Note there is no gas station on the route, so fill up on Hwy 1. St Alban's is on the west side of the fjord. You'll find a few motels with dining rooms and lounges around the end of the bay.
Further south is a concentration of small fishing villages. The scenery along Rte 364 to Hermitage is particularly impressive, as are the landscapes around Harbour Breton. The largest town (population 1700) in the region, it huddles around the ridge of a gentle inland bay.
