Bonavista Lighthouse


Provincial Historic Site

The Cape Bonavista Lighthouse is an incredible red and white striped lighthouse operated from 1843 to 1962 and is now home to a museum. Built in 1843, the lighthouse is one of the few in the world where you can still climb up the stone tower to see the same seal oil–fueled light used in the 19th century.

You are able to purchase your tickets on-site to enter this informative and enjoyable museum where you’ll learn about the operations of the lighthouse and how families lived within it. This is one of the rare lighthouses where you can climb to the top and take in all the views.
