Pluses: Great place to hike around and enjoy the sandy beaches with the beautiful views. Very friendly people , like the manager of the grocery store that offered us his car keys to travel around town when we asked him if we could leave our camper in the parking lot will we walked around. Never have that happen in the States. Also met Mr. Stricklan who put that great monument up in memory of his parents in honor of all the fisherman. May not have spelled his name right. Would like to know if he is still alive and well. The two park officers were really nice people too. The camp ground was super too.
Minuses: Only minus was that the park officers told us if we were to leave early in the morning , we would be able to see the caribo along the road. Welllll I guess we weren't supose to see any LOL Only 2 moose and we followed one down the road for 2 miles. LOL
A good place to... Good place to go to soak in more of the Newfoundland atmosphere and relax. This was the first of many places we visited in the 5 weeks we spent on the island. We traveled 4700 miles and 100 plus was taking the road to Burgeo and out. And no Caribo LOL Would recommend Burgeo to everyone.
Go see Burgeo
