Trinity Bight


Welcome to Trinity Bight

Port Rexton

The breathtaking view that you see as you enter this community is only one example of the ocean scenery that awaits you on your visit to Port Rexton. Once two communities, Ship Cove and Robin's Hood, in 1910 they became one. Port Rexton is now the largest community in the Bight with a population of approximately over 400.

Once situated on Half-Way Hill to serve both Port Rexton and Trinity East, Christ Church was removed in 1950 and was rebuilt in a little valley in Port Rexton. The first church was consecrated on October 10, 1869 and the second was consecrated on March 18, 1951 and still stands today.

Climb to the top of Gun Hill overlooking the harbour where you will find five cannons dating from the French invasion of the 1700's. Walk around the harbour to Bailey's Head and take the beaten track to Devil's Cove and Skiff Cove or for the adventurous, a 60 minute hike will take you to Skerwink Point.

Along the beaches you can gather driftwood and sea shells, enjoy the excitement of capelin rolling onto the beach, the thrill of humpback whales feeding or just watch the waves as they crash onto the shore.

Along the coastal trail you will see unusual rock formations and towering cliffs. From here, you may spot an iceberg or discover sea birds in their natural habitat.

For the sports fisherman, Port Rexton has many ponds and at Robin's Hood Pond one can catch a delicious meal of Sea Trout.
