Battle Harbour Heritage Properties Foot Paths
There is an escarpment behind the settlement of Battle Harbour with traditional footpaths leading to points of interest, Marconi Towers, one of two cemeteries and a small plane wreck. View wildflowers, seabirds, whales and icebergs from the island. Listen to the ocean sounds. Find a comfortable niche in the rocky land to settle down for a read, write a few lines of poetry, watch for boats, or take a close look at the unique geology. All this and no black flies on Battle Island!

The offshore lines appearing in the map above which purport to delimit the offshore area of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador have no legal effect. Apart from the boundaries established pursuant to the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Atlantic Accord Implementation Act, which include the line established pursuant to the 2002 award of the arbitration tribunal concerning the delimitation of portions of the offshore areas between Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia, there are no agreed boundaries between the offshore areas of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Government of Canada, the Provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island or Quebec or the Nunavut Territory, and no such boundaries have been established under statute, regulation or agreement. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has made these facts known to Google.
