My daughter and I walked quite a way out, and away from the interpretation centre. We were more interested in the beautiful landscape than the actually building. I loved the fact that there were so few people. We were able to walk down below and walk along the high rock walls and get some amazing pics that actually looked like... More

Disappointed that the facility was not open as it looked as if it would be informative. So walked around the building, read the information available, viewed the parts of the windmills, they really are huge. Very windy day!

I took a friend here last evening - she is visiting from Scotland and delighted with the dinner. We were seated by a window with a wonderful view of the lighthouse and the ocean. It was dark by the time we finished our dinner and were fascinated to watch the light turn in the lighthouse! Our server was Debbie who... More

A beautiful place to go, we walked the shore line and the cliffs around the centre, and took in the information about the wind turbines. We went on a very windy day for the entire island so the turbines were at full force. The day we went there must have been about 100 seals all floating in the water just... More

This place was a great stop. Perfect for a long walk along the sea listening to the waves breaking on the shore, eating at the restaurant near by or visiting the interpretation center.

The park is beautiful with lots of shale rocks on the seashore for you to make your very own Inukshuk or admire one of the dozens that are already build on the beach. The wind museum is quaint but the real highlight is the scale of the wind generator laying on its side outside.

the wind energy centre is at the north cape and provides some trails through the woods and along the top of the cliffs that are interesting, but would not really be exciting for kids. The kids would be more excited about going treasure hunting at low tide. You can stand in awe at the base of a wind turbine, and... More

Being a geek, my husband called and asked if a private/detailed tour would be available. Andy, was amazing! He spent at least two hours with us (no charge!) and took us everywhere....even off-site. Fascinating place!

When we visited in early June, we were disappointed to find that only the gift shop was open. The restaurant had not opened and no other facilities seemed to be available. It was still possible to walk along the pathways and overlook the ''end of the island''. The beach and cliffs are composed of red shale and sand. Many visitors... More
