Pluses: Cape Race has been called Canada's most significant landfall.
the curent lighthouse was built in 1907. It is one of few manned lighthouses in Newfoundland.
Cape Race is also the site of the newly reconstucted Marconi Wireless Station that received the famous distress call from the Titanic on April 14,1912.
stop by the visitor centre in Portugal Cove South and get information on getting a tour of the lighthouse and Wireless Station.
Minuses: 20km drive on a gravel road .
the drive is worth it because the scenery is breathtaking!!!
A good place to... hike , do some whale watching and bird watching
