Located on the island’s northeast coast, this is the province’s most popular bay, with cottage rentals scattered in and around the edges of a scenic, coastal town known as Conception Bay South.
The town is known for its antique stores and bounty of fresh produce and seafood, which can be purchased directly from farmers and fishers at markets and roadside stands. This offers a great opportunity for culinary enthusiasts to stock up on local ingredients before preparing homemade meals in their cottage kitchen!
Home to the Royal Newfoundland Yacht Club, the Foxtrap Marina, and Topsail Beach Rotary Park, the area abounds with boating and water-sport opportunities, including diving, whale-watching, and deep sea tuna fishing. Visitors can also spend an afternoon sailing around Little Bell Island and Kelly’s Island or walking along the seven kilometre trails of the Manuels River, an internationally recognized geological site.
Just a thirty minute drive from the capital city of St. John’s, Conception Bay makes for a charming coastal retreat and is a popular place to rent a cottage in Newfoundland.+ More
