Boyd's Cove, off Highway 340, 1 hour north of Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador. 

Imagine... a now-extinct people with a unique language and culture, thriving on the rich resources of the land and sea: seals, birds, fish...

300 years ago, this site was a Beothuk village. Tour the interpretation centre where exhibits and artifacts foster an appreciation for this unique, and now vanished culture.

From the interpretation centre, follow a 1.5 km groomed walking trail to the village site - today an outline of housepits is the only evidence of the Beothuk people who once lived here. Along the trail, a sculpture designed by renowned Newfoundland artist Gerald Squires evokes the tragedy of the Beothuks' demise.
