Hunt’s Cove Park
Straddling the Atlantic Ocean, Hunts Cove’s Free Day Park is the perfect place for a family soiree, some beachcombing or a cook-out. The winding strand of beach provides an opportunity to gather cold, clean, midnight blue mussels or teeming silvered swarms of capelin in July. The Park has bathroom facilities, an open fire pit that begs a singalong, and a roofer cookhouse. Two Challenging hiking trails leave from here – one approximately 20 minutes that overlooks Stoneville, and an hour long walk to the Farewell ferry.
