Must see on your Newfoundland trip. North Americas most easterly point. Currently under construction to enhance the experience but still a great experience. We went on a windy & foggy day but didn't take away from the enjoyment of our amazing country. Free admission for...More

It was great to see the sights, but it was under construction and certain places were not safe for seniors to go if you had a disability so unfortunately we couldn't make our way down the hills. I would definately recommend this place though. What...More

My husband and I loved the lighthouse but the teens weren't interested. They were very interested in the view and the whales. The fog came in and so did the whales. We couldn't see them but could hear them right below us. Will return another...More

Being the most easterly point, you really can't miss Cape Spear when visiting Newfoundland. There's a nice walking path, and two lighthouses to visit. One is even open so you can see how the lighthouse keeper and his family used to live. The only real...More

We visited mid morning and had a good hike around the premises. The light houses are well maintained. The historical significance of being on the easternmost point of North America was what attracted us.

Visited Cape Spear in early July 2017 and despite being shrouded in fog, it was an enjoyable experience. Got my selfie on the point, heard the whales, got pictures of the lighthouse in the fog, learned a bit of history. Don't miss it just because...More

Rugged terrain, wild seas and whipping wind. Perfect.. Two parking areas. Lovely to picnic on a sunny day. Minutes from St. John's

What a great start to our visit to Newfoundland. The views are simply spectacular and what luck to be there in 2017 - the whole park was free!!! Take your camera and a wind breaker. We saw 2 whales breaching and showing off - just...More

This was an enjoyable place. The staff was extra friendly and extremely knowledgeable. They provided great background information. You will have to hike up a steep height of stairs to reach the lighthouse at the top, but if you take your time, it's doable. Once...More

It’s worth a stop even for 30 minutes. We were there on a windy day in October. All the buildings were closed for the season, but it was well worth the visit to walk around and watch the waves. There was a lower parking lot... More
