Newfoundland and Labrador’s Most Romantic PlacesBy Newfoundland & Labrador
When you visit a place like Newfoundland and Labrador it’s pretty easy to fall in love. Romance waits around each and every turn in the road. Whether you’re on the deck of a tour boat, meandering the twisting beauty of a seaside trail, or watching the sun dip slowly below the horizon line from the Cape Spear National Historic Site — the most-easterly point in North America — love is all around you.
However, the scenic beauty isn’t the only romantic thing about this place. If you’re travelling the eastern region of the province, where both Trinity and Conception Bay meet, you’re bound to stumble upon more than a few lovely places: Cupids, Heart’s Content, Heart’s Desire, and Heart’s Delight will no doubt have your own heart skipping a beat.
Across the bay, you’ll discover a place that’s a sight for sore eyes for any weary traveller. Little Heart’s Ease has been easing the hearts and minds of sailors and travellers alike since the days of English explorer John Guy, way back in the early 1600s.
If you’re looking for a chuckle, there’s no shortage of tickles: Places like Black Tickle, Leading Tickles, and Chimney Tickle are sure to leave you with a grin and more than a few warm and fuzzy feels on your journey through the province. We dare you not to laugh. Out here, it’s harder than it looks.
When it comes to paradise, we are one of the few places in the world that can offer you options. Just outside of St. John’s you’ll find a larger Paradise — one of the fastest growing communities in Atlantic Canada. And, if you’re looking for something with less hustle and bustle, Little Paradise can be found on the island’s south coast, on the Connaigre Peninsula, the perfect place to get away from it all.
If you like storybook romance, there’s no better place to find it than at the Point Amour Lighthouse in southern Labrador. It’s the tallest beacon in Atlantic Canada, and the sights and sounds that surround it will set your heart aflutter in short order.
And, for those who enjoy chocolate and candies over flowers and Valentine’s Day cards, a trip to Sweet Bay on the Bonavista Peninsula can help satisfy even the sweetest of sweet tooths, and keep your heart full while you’re here.
While the natural beauty of this place, along with the people you’ll meet while you’re here, can easily cast a unique spell over you — the places you visit on your travels can quite easily sweep you off your feet.
