Discovery UNESCO Global Geopark - Long Beach


Jan 1 - Dec 1

Long Beach has a long history–on November 1, 1755, the city of Lisbon, Portugal was struck by the most destructive earthquake in European history. This quake generated a tsunami so large it travelled across the Atlantic and was observed here on Long Beach, over 3500 km from the quake’s epicentre. Put this geosite on your Bonavista road trip must-see list!
