Located in the middle of Conception Bay, Newfoundland, Bell Island's terrain and coastal structure allow bird watchers the opportunity to find many different types of birds not normally seen in a single location in other areas of the province. At the ferry landing, and especially on the cliffs adjacent to the Lighthouse, the bird watcher can view the nesting colonies of the Black Guillemot; at the Grebe's Nest site - hundreds of starlings flying from nearby fields to nests located in the cliffs; or the beautiful great black-backs at the Bell at the southern end of the island. Wandering around the island one can frequently see different sandpipers and snipe. The grassland sections of the island offer one the opportunity to see kestrels and merlins and many different types of sparrows. In the forested sections of Bell Island look for robins, grosbeaks and woodpeckers. No wonder Bell Island is becoming known as The Belle of the Bay.
Trails - Some of the best scenery around can be enjoyed on a stroll along the cliffs and beaches.
Sea Kayaking - Bell Island offers an ideal place for sea adventure. Towering cliffs, birds, whales and caves are just some of things you can see. There are plenty of small beaches around the island if you want to come ashore for a rest or just to explore.
Sunsets - The north side of the Island offers some of the most magnificent sunsets that you will see anywhere.
