The Caribou Trail, 148 kilometers through the Long Range Mountains, terminates in the outport town of Burgeo, a town immortalized in Farley Mowatt's "A Whale for the Killing." Some of the 60,000 caribou that inhabit the interior may be seen as you traverse the interior plateau.

Sandy Point the historic island of Sandy Point was once the largest settlement on the West Coast of Newfoundland and the commercial center during the 1700's and 1800's. It was first permanently settled around 1760 and remained a thriving fishing community for approximately 200 years. It declined in prominence after the completion of the trans-island railway in 1897. With the government resettlement program during the mid-1960's, Sandy Point was declared an outport. As a result, many of the last residents eventually relocated to what is new the community of St. George's and other surrounding areas. Local effects are underway to establish a heritage and wildlife conservation areas as Sandy Point is a nesting area of the piping plover, an endangered species, and the only known nesting area in North America of the European black-headed gull. Tours of the island are usually available in June, July and August. Sandy beaches, picnic tables, camping and recreational facilities are available in nearby Barachois Park.

Harmon Seaside Links was expanded to a beautiful 18-hole layout in the 2000 season! It is an Oceanside links course with a great combination of three-lined holes and the traditional open-style holes. My favorite holes are number four and number twelve. Both are excellent par fives with a great risk/reward decision on the second shot.
