Set in the beautiful seaside community of Tors Cove, a tiny coastal village nestled in the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve (about 30 minutes south of St. John’s).

🌊 A picturesque cobblestone beach awaits us… savour the smells and sounds of the ocean and take in the beauty of the islands that dot this coast, several of which are part of the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve, and home to over half a million puffins. The world’s 2nd largest Leach’s storm-petrel colony (more than 620,000 pairs) also come here to nest.

📷 Take your camera, the saltboxes and scenery are breathtaking. If we’re lucky, we may even see seals, puffins, whales or icebergs as well!
