Do not forget your camera! Spectacular views from every angle. Plan to spend an hour or two simply exploring the lighthouse and area. If you are limited in time, go anyway, just to say you've been. You won't be disappointed!

It was a sunny, windy cool day in August 2015. My cousins from Ontario were visiting Newfoundland. We drove to Cape Spear and we had the pleasure of viewing the stunning view. Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful...

Sunrise at Cape Spear is one of the things to do when visiting St. John's. The outcrop of land on the east coast of Canada is a go to destination.

Drove out to the point on a cold wet foggy day. Why you may ask, it was the only time during my trip I had the time and I couldn't give up the chance get to the most easternly point of North America. Saw the lighthouse up close however was not able to see anything else :(

The furthest point east with amazing views, nice lighthouse and cool fortifications. Fun little trip outside St. John's.

An amazing experience a short drive from downtown St. John's takes you to a stunning view and wild winds and wildlife. Don't get too close to the cliff edge !!

Visit this place during sunrise/sunset... they also have tours.. I personally have not done a tour as I am from here.. but you wont be sorry.. Its North Americas most easterly spot and it has a breathtaking view.. also during summer you can view whales breaching .... dont forget to bring your camera with you!

Beautiful setting for a walk and to see the sea and to take lovely photos of the lighthouse! Was a bit windy the day I went so be prepared!

This is a place I have went to many times as I'm from here but it's always a great place to visit. It's a great tourist place.

Cape Spear Lighthouse is stunning, whatever the weather. The views are magnificent and this is an ideal place to wander around and enjoy the peace and beauty of the area.
