It is a nice walk out the road to the lighthouse and the scenery is wonderful. If you can't get on the Ferryland Picnics reservation list consider packing your own lunch and have a picnic here.

This is a beautiful area to visit. We walked out to the lighthouse when we stopped. The trail / road is easy to navigate. The reward at the end is the lighthouse and the scenery. Do it.

We packed our own picnic and blankets for our Ferryland visit. A-bit-longer-than-expected but not challenging walk from the parking lot to the light house, which has just a steep ascent right in front of it. Lovely, rolling grassy land of peat and small flowers from...More

We've visited a lot of lighthouses in the U.S. and Canada, and the setting for Ferryland is at the top of the list. As lighthouses go, this one is good, but not great; however, being surrounded by a dramatic coastline dotted with picturesque islands, it...More

I was thrilled by my decision to book two nights at this little village. The B&B, Dunnes is right on the ocean and East Coast Trail. It is also a walk from the lighthouse (book your picnic months in advance) and site of the music...More
