Twillingate is located on the Twillingate Islands in Notre Dame Bay, off the northeastern shore of the island of Newfoundland, Canada. The small town has become a popular spot for visitors in the summer and is now being promoted as the "Iceberg Capital of the World". There are lots of beautiful, quaint fishing villages in the area: Boyd's Cove, Summerford, Virgin Arm and Newville - perfect for a hike, a stroll on the beach and for collecting pebbles or shells.
Once the visitor reaches Twillingate island, he has to pass through the very small fishing communities of Black Duck Cove, Purcell's harbour and Little Harbour before reaching the main town of Twinlingate with its approximately 2448 people.
Twillingate can be easily accessed via Route 340 from Lewisporte if approaching from western Newfoundland or Route 330 from Gander if you are coming from eastern Newfoundland. It is approximately 1.5 hours from Gander and about an hour from Lewisporte. Twillingate is only about 5km from the Twillingate-New World Island causeway.
When in the town, access to the northern island is provided by "Tickle Bridge", which was was founded in 1965. The town is about 100 kilometres (62 mi) north of Lewisporte and Gander.
