Fodor's Expert Review Grates Cove

Harbour Grace Archaeological Site/Ruins Fodor's Choice
Grates Cove community is 73 km (45 miles) north of Harbour Grace on Route 70. Here is a photographer's dream, with vistas of both Bonavista and Conception bays from the flat rocks by the harbor. In Iceberg Season you cannot find a wider field of view for the startling magnificence. The fields are covered with the remains of dry stone walls built by the original Irish settlers. Maintained and well-marked walking paths wind through the hills, the community, and along the cliffs. A community-built museum is always open to the public. For food and a place to stay, there is the most excellent Grates Cove Studios with vacation homes and a café that has become a community gathering place. The restaurant combines Newfoundland home cooking with Cajun and Korean cuisine, including burgers, gumbo, and Korean barbecue. Contact them to find out about upcoming live music events.
