Whale Point

Newfoundland & Labrador

Phew, that view. This windswept hill overlooks the cold ocean, drifting icebergs and breaching whales. It's located at the end of the road in the 'town' of Ship Cove, adjacent to a series of fantastically atmospheric geographic nomenclature, including Cape Onion, Diable Cove and Savage Cove. The lonely, end-of-the-world atmosphere is underlined by a nearby cemetery.
