The small town of Twillingate is on an island off the north shore of Newfoundland and Labrador—you can reach it by causeway. It is 170 mi/275 km north of St. John's.
Twillingate is a good place to see icebergs in the early summer. The Long Point Lighthouse is a great vantage point for watching them float by—it's also good for spying whales. Twillingate also features a wide, striking harbor.
While in town, visit the Twillingate Museum (eclectic collection of artifacts from the area) and the Prime Berth Historic Fishing Centre. The fishing center has more than you ever wanted to know about the industry, as well as an interesting gift shop.
In July, Twillingate hosts the Fish, Fun and Folk Festival, with music, dancing, storytelling, seafood, crafts and more.
Fogo Island, home to a series of scenic and remote fishing villages, is nearby and can be reached via a 45-minute ferry ride from Farewell.
