Port de Grave

The Port de Grave Peninsula is made up of several small communities including Otterbury Barneed, Harbour Hills, Sandy Cove, the Harbour, Ship Cove, Dans Hole, Blow me Down, Pick Eyes and Hibbs Cove. Port de Grave is located in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The main tourist stop in the community is the Port de grave boat basin, a modern port complex that caters to 100-120 vessels. Its outer wall was created from thousands of tons of massive rocks that was placed in conjunction with the nature flow of the harbour islands.

Other tourist attractions include the Porter House, which is situated on a small hill just above the the Fishermans Museum, and the Newfoundland rock - so called because it has an outcropped area that is shaped to a certain degree like the map of Newfoundland. The rock was dropped in a field from the main body of a rocky area known as Foxes Rocks by glacier action and makes a great photograph for the photography enthusiast.
