Visit Red Bay, Canada
Red Bay, Canada
Red Bay is one of the oldest occupied ports along the Labrador Straits, established by Breton fishermen and Basque whalers during the 16th century to refine whale oil for export back to Europe.
The sheltered harbour of Red Bay was at the heart of this hazardous and pioneering industry and is now a UNESCO Historical Site with important archeological finds, including sunken Basque whaling galleons.
Local legends of Red Bay make reference to hidden treasure buried in a body of water known as Pond on the Hill.
