Point Amour Lighthouse

L'Anse Amour Road, off Highway 510, 10 minutes north of Forteau on the Straits of Belle Isle, Newfoundland and Labrador. 

Imagine... you're at the top of the tallest lighthouse in Atlantic Canada - the second tallest in Canada - look, there's an iceberg, a whale breaching, and a shipwreck in the distance....

Point Amour Lighthouse is a lot more than a great view... it's a snapshot of life on the Straits, set in a spectacular landscape. Whales and icebergs are just the beginning - coastal hikes, wildflowers, fossils, the wreck of the HMS Raleigh, and the oldest burial mound in North America - get your hiking shoes on and your camera out.

Note this site is only accessible via a 4 km gravel road.
