Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse, Rocky Harbour

Strikingly white against the blue sky, Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse provides arguably the finest views in the area--especially impressive at sunset. Built in the 19th century, this lighthouse is part of a national park that offers many walking trails, scenic viewpoints, and picnic areas. Drop by the lighthouse keeper's house to see an exhibit of local artifacts, or join an educational presentation to hear folk songs performed and learn about the hardships fishermen endured while living and working in along this rugged coastline. Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Gros Morne National Park Edition.
