Sunday Drive to Northern Bay

Located on Route 70 about a 30-minute drive north of Carbonear is Northern Bay. The town is home to about 290 residents.

The local economy is based on fishing.

Northern Bay is not incorporated as a municipality.

The area is perhaps best known for Northern Bay Sands, a popular beach and campground area. Northern Bay Sands features two freshwater pools. There are two bars, a laundromat, a café and a take-out restaurant within walking distance of the beach.

As with most other communities in the province, there are breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Sunday Drive is a weekly feature that focuses on small to medium communities in Newfoundland and Labrador.
