a lovely area on a nice summer day-the community is very authentic- feels like going back in time. We were waiting for our reservation at Mallard Cottage so had a little walk about. Beautiful!

They have some of the best beer I've had in a long time. The fishing village is quaint and beautiful to look at while sipping away. Service is friendly and prices are reasonable.

The deep cold Atlantic at its finest. Beautiful views of Cape Spear, the most easterly point in Canada. You can stand on the tops of huge cliffs.. Be safe.. A nice example in the city of what newfoundland has offered!

I would say this is a paradise for adventure lovers. The beauty of Atlantic and the cold breeze keeps you with high energy.

Be sure to park your car where the sign says "no public parking beyond this point, because they aren't kidding about that. But take a walk up the hill at least to the entrance to the battery. The views, wildflowers, and quiet of the area...More

Although this is truly a beautiful little village the amount of modern buildings taking over the landscape was very disappointing and took away from the uniqueness of this area.

From Signal Hill we took the walking trail that leads to Quidi Vidi. There is a brewery that is worth visiting and sampling some of the beers offered. Restaurant choices are very limited. A view opportunities for some photos.

It was an old fishing village right on the beautiful bay. There are trails to walk nearby as well as visiting the plantation and the Quidi Vidi Brewery if you're thirsty!
