Things to Do

So Many Things to Do!

Go fishing on the Atlantic, pick wild berries, eat seafood so fresh you know who caught it. Meet artists and fishermen. Join a sing-along. See the by’s that build the boats. We’ll hook you up. At Ocean Delight, you’re not just getting a room. You’re getting an experience.

Birds, Bergs, and Boat Tours

Love natural life? We’ve got it in droves. We’re minutes away from boat tours to get up close and personal to whales, eagles, ice bergs, seabirds, stunning scenery – everything you came to Newfoundland for!

We can happily point you towards some great local tour operators. And remember, Trinity Bay is a bird- and whale-watcher’s paradise – so you never know what you’re going to see off your back deck!

Take a Swing

Don’t let the ‘rural’ fool you: there’s more to do in rural Newfoundland than you could possibly imagine! Practice your swing at a nine-hole, challenging course surrounded by beautiful scenery, right here in Whiteway.

Take a Hike

There’s so much to explore all around the cottages, so don’t forget your hiking shoes!

We have lots of great walking trails out here on the Baccalieu Trail, near the cottages. So many, indeed, that we haven’t even had a chance to explore them all!

Here are a few nearby favourites:

Heart’s Delight-Islington – Don’t forget your camera for these picture-perfect trails along Route 80, not far from the cottages.

  • Western Point Hiking Trail – 1 km linear walk along ocean’s edge.
  • Northern Point Hiking Trail – 3.12 km easy to moderate, return loop. Along the ocean as well.

Whiteway -The Jimmy Rowe walking trail around the pond. 35 min loop, some steepish hills, parking, picnic spots and new swimming area make this a favourite spot for Goldens Friday and Murphy!

Bay Roberts –
While stocking up on fresh supplies, don’t miss this scenic and activity-rich town just 30 minutes from the cottages. Pack a picnic for the East Shoreline Heritage Walk in this historic area dating back to the early 1600’s.

This is just to mention a few of the main trails, ponds, and glorious sights to be seen here.

With wide open country and hundreds of miles of pristine, gorgeous country side,  and a special climate. In fact our very own Wonderful World of Whiteway is recognized as having the best micro climate in all of Trinity Bay. And we’ll cheers, or hike, to that!

 

Meet some Locals

Don’t let the quiet surroundings fool you, the Baccalieu Trail is bursting with local artists, entertainment, shopping, and down-home Newfoundland friendliness.

Shop for original Newfoundland arts and crafts, visit one (or two!) local micro-breweries, check out the multitude of nearby landmarks, museums, live theatre, or even learn how to build an old-fashioned wooden boat.

Here in Trinity Bay South, you can be wined, dined, regaled, entertained, shocked, surprised … but never bored!

Explore the Area

And our location on the Baccalieu Trail makes us the perfect starting point to explore the idyllic charms of rural Newfoundland.  Drive to a point such as St. John’s, Grates Cove, Bay de Verde, Dildo, Cupids or Brigus, and return by a different route, visiting each charming community along the way.

Discover a Hidden Gem

Ten minutes away from the cottages you’ll find The Doctor’s House, a breathtaking inn & spa tucked between the trees and the water’s edge in Green’s Harbour. Ask us about dining at their ‘Secret Garden Restaurant’, as well as Aveda spa services, walking trails and even a farm featuring Newfoundland ponies, chickens, goats and sheep!
