A scenic getaway in outport Nfld., just 1/2 hour from the TCH. Nestled on a hillside overlooking a wide stretch of sandy beach, the community of Nickys Nose Cove, a tiny scattering of houses and summer cabins, is named for a profile in the rock at Nickys Nose Head. There are fewer then 20 permanent residents here but the beach is a busy place during the short capelin season when the tiny fish supplies a treat for whales, seals and humans alike.
The south shore of Green Bay features a dramatic coastline with many miles to explore, from beaches to resettled outports to ancient native campgrounds. Through Green Bay Island Tickle to Three Arms and around Hennesey Island, rock formations, brightly colored lichen stained cliffs, hidden coves and inlets are just some of the fascinating features you will find. Nesting eagles and ospreys, migrating pods of whales and dolpins and drifting icebergs are some of the areas natural features. Extensive hiking trails with rest facilities, bridges and boardwalks wander through abandoned settlements leading to scenic lookouts that offer grand ocean views.
