Rose Blanche Scenic Drive


On this roughly 45km drive, you can see the Rose Blanche Lighthouse, which includes the Lightkeeper’s living quarters. It was built in 1873 from the granite it stood and was in operation until the 1940s. It is the only restored granite lighthouse in Atlantic Canada. 

While here, you can stop at The Lightkeepers Inn B&B, Crafts/Gift Shop, The Grub Box (Food Takeout), and the Museum. 

On the drive, you’ll see many little towns and beautiful views, including waterfalls, cliffs, and crashing waves. This coastal area is one full of death and disaster from wrecks but also of heroism by the Harvey family and their dog Hairyman. This route, especially if stopping at the lighthouse, should be at least a half a day or full-day plan to truly allow you to stop and enjoy everything along the way.
