Let's set the record straight: Trinity is the Bonavista Peninsula's most popular stop, a historic town of crooked seaside lanes, storybook heritage houses and gardens with white picket fences. Trinity Bight, however, is the name given to the 12 communities in the vicinity, including Trinity, Port Rexton and New Bonaventure.
If it all looks familiar, it may be because The Shipping News was partly filmed here. While the excitement has faded, there are still historic buildings, stunning hiking and theater along with whale-watching.
First visited by Portuguese explorer Miguel Corte-Real in 1500 and established as a town in 1580, Trinity is one of the oldest settlements on the continent.
