Birchy Bay Travel Guide

Birchy Bay is a small community of 800 in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The name Birchy Bay is derived from the many birch trees, which were found on its shores many years ago. Birchy Bay was first home to the native people of the Island, who used the river, which flows through the community as a source of fresh water and to procure salmon and trout.

The town’s chief income was the logging industry in the early 1900s when a French family opened a steam powered sawmill procuring lumber from the country and driving it down the streams and brooks. The lobster fishery along with trapping was another means of income in the early days.
