Bonavista, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, is today a bustling tourist town in the summer, and a sleepy remote outport in the winter. When John Cabot became the first European to spot the rocky shore of Newfoundland in the late fifteenth century, he probably didn’t think a charming town would pop up in the same place. But over the next five hundred-plus years, the village of Bonavista would rise and fall with the whims of the local fishing and transportation industries.

Come for the history, but stay for the nature. At the tip of a long peninsula, Bonavista is hours from anything resembling a city. Its lighthouse is famously photogenic, and its hills have epic views of sheer cliffs, crashing waves, gigantic icebergs, and serene whales. Swing by neighbouring villages for Newfoundland’s famous hospitality, or cozy up with a book in a Bonavista, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada hostel to wait out the weather.

If you’re looking for a bite to eat, head to the centre of town and take your pick of fine modern cuisine or hearty Newfoundland classics, always set in rustic heritage buildings. Explore fascinating historic sites, then move to the coast for great coffee, or to the outskirts of town for ice cream. If you’re there on a weekend, pop into a pub for some live Celtic-influenced music, or to the theatre for a movie or a show.

To know a town is to know its neighbourhood. Extend your stay in a Bonavista, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada hostel by exploring the wider region, with hours of hiking trails and countless tiny hamlets tucked away in their own little harbours, from Trinity East to Tickle Cove.

Budget accommodations and hostels in Bonavista, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, are uncommon, so it pays to book ahead. They can generally be found to the periphery of the village, while the more expensive Bonavista hotels and holiday homes are clustered in the centre. This is to your advantage -- the town is small, so even if you’re traveling on foot, you’re only ever a few minutes away from anywhere.
