Welcome to South Coast
Isle aux Morts (Island of the Dead) got its label compliments of the many shipwrecks that occurred just offshore over some 400 years. Named after a family famous for daring shipwreck rescues, the Harvey Trail (7km) twists along the rugged shore and makes a stirring walk. Look for the signs in town.
Another highlight is the last settlement along the road, Rose Blanche, an absolutely splendid, traditional-looking village nestled in a cove with a fine natural harbor – a perfect example of the classic Newfoundland fishing community. From here follow the signs to the restored Rose Blanche Lighthouse.
