Welcome to Bonavista
The town of Bonavista is one of the highlights of the peninsula that bears the same name. You'll find a lashing of historic sites, plus creative restaurants, businesses and accommodations that have worked in concert to effect a small, innovative downtown revival. Visitors should understand Bonavista is a working town. This is no assemblage of painstakingly elegant historical homes à la Trinity, and the village does not spill down a raw rock face like settlements on the Irish Loop. Rather, Bonavista remains something of a fishing village, all cottages starting to peel and sag, plus modern convenience stores. But peel back a layer and you'll find a living, functioning community, where the warmth and friendliness is vital and sincere, even compared to other Newfoundland towns, and raw natural beauty is a quick hike away.
