We did this drive on the way to and from our stay in Bonavista. I would do this drive instead of the Irish loop as the scenery is much better. Be sure to stop in Trinity, Elliston, Cape Bonavista and Spillars Cove
We had a lovely few days exploring the Port au Port peninsula and the French Ancestors route. We lunched in Grand’ Terre, visited Blue Beach, Boutte du Cap (amazing sunsets), Hidden Falls, Our Lady of Mercy church and the Gravels hiking trail!
