I travelled to visit the Rose Blanche lighthouse from Port Aux Basques and it took about 45 minutes along a very winding, but scenic road. The lighthouse is located up on the rocks a short walk from the parking lot. To get to it you have to walk one of two paths. Both paths provide excellent views and opportunity to... More

While in bad weather at Cheeseman Park decided to try Rose Blanche and visit the restored lighthouse. It was well worth the trip, the lighthouse was fantastic and the craft shop and staff very nice. Also found on the property was a fishermans' stage with some artifacts, really nice. Had a great visit. Also walked to a waterfall just outside... More

We were there June 15th. It is about a 1/2 km walk to the lighthouse on a gravel path. You need good walking shoes to get there. The walk is very scenic and wind gusts from the ocean are continuous. The rooms inside are set up to give you a good idea of how the lighthouse keepers lived. Climbing the... More

This lighthouse is a walk back in time! It's an out of the way place to get to but the scenery is pleasant along the way from Port Aux Basque, although the road is often in very bad shape with potholes so drive slowly and just enjoy the scenery. The lighthouse is nicely maintained and there's a small entrance fee... More

We had this place to ourselves in late September. Rocky coastline with old historic lighthouse. The most beautiful scenery you can imagine.

A nice walk to a restored lighthouse made of granite! Lovely views of the sea and the village of Rose Blanche. A quiet place to spend some contemplative time.

We stayed one night in Rose Blanche and really needed two to see the area properly. The mountainous terrain is beyond the ability of my camera and photography skills but we have travelled most of Newfoundland and this is like nothing we've seen before. Beautiful doesn't even begin to describe it. The lighthouse is a large stone structure built in... More

The lighthouse itself is very interesting and the walk around the headlands offers some impressive vistas. In addition there is a nice gift shop and a neat little fishery museum with interesting artifacts and model ships. The town of Rose Blanche, itself, is a photographers dream with great settings at every turn.

Since we got off the ferry yesterday at Port-aux-Basques and took the 45-minute drive that leads to Rose Blanche, we haven't stopped marveling at the beauty and uniqueness of this area. It has to be one of the best kept secrets or outstanding places to visit. This morning we went to the lighthouse and spent over two hours there. It... More

Loved this lighthouse. The office staff is very informative and friendly. You have to walk along the coastal waters to get to the lighthouse which sits on top of the rocks. Inside there are very interesting artifacts and literature pertaining to the lighthouse keepers and their families. Would say that it would be fun for any age group.
