Trinity Bight


Welcome to Trinity Bight

A "bight" is the bend in a coast forming an open bay. In Newfoundland English the twelve communities of "Trinity Bight" define a magical place of history and heritage, of music and merriment, of character and charm.

Trinity Bight, from the north shore, contains the communities of English Harbour, Champney's East, Champney's Arm, Champney's West, Trinity East, Port Rexton, Trinity, Goose Cove, Dunfield, Trouty, Old Bonaventure and New Bonaventure.

These communities are gems - colonial culture brightened by buoyant palettes of Atlantic colours: the sea, sky, hills and the carefully-applied paint on treasured homes and buildings.

Brilliant summer comes alive in the communities of Trinity Bight. Of all Newfoundland's heritage communities, Trinity perhaps defines us best. Trinity is one of the most historically-significant communities in the province. The deep regard and respect for the past goes back farther here than anywhere else on the island.

This area is historically significant and much work has been done to preserve or recreate the vernacular architecture, sites, history and culture. The twelve communities that make up the Trinity Bight are a rewarding visit on any vacation to Newfoundland.
