‪Nice drive and at the end of the road is an old lighthouse. Not a lot of services in this area so bring your own or you could be disappointed. Make sure you have lots of gas .‬

‪A lovely scenic drive down to this private spot which is lovingly restored. Good for history buffs or just nature lovers… easy hike, nice washrooms and good food at the Grub Shack!‬

‪We left Port aux basques, the drive to Rose Blanche was one of the most scenic
drives we encountered on our drive around Newfoundland.
With other small hamlets along the way.
At the lightkeepers Inn B&B you will be amazed at the view.
There is a kitchen serving takeaway food which was excellent, you can return to the B&B
where there is a full kitchen at your disposal.
Included in the in your payment you will get free access to the lighthouse and museum (a bonus)
The view of the ocean & harbor were exceptional, on walking to the lighthouse to views fantastic
with the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks.
This visit was on our 20th anniversary of being in Canada, Just perfect.‬

‪We drove 45 minutes from Port aux basques and started at the lighthouse walk. Even in the fog it was a hit with the kids. The craft store had very reasonably priced little boats that my boys loved. We then drove back to zport aux Basques having a lovely walk to the Barachois falls and the Harvey trail at Isle des morts‬

‪We just spent a week in Port aux Basques visiting friends and seeing the sights. It was suggested that we take the drive out to Rose Blanche to see the lighthouse so we did. I can say its worth the drive, and lots to see along the way down the the highway. The view from the lighthouse is wonderful, and its a lovely historical location. Make sure you take a camera because your going to want to get a picture of the stone lighthouse. We will defiantly send out friends out to the lighthouse if we know they are going that way.‬

‪This is one of the nicest short scenic drives on the island of Newfoundland.

Leaving Port aux Basques we headed due south on Route 470 which dead ends at the town of Rose Blanche although you can keep going by passenger ferry to the tiny outport of La Poile if you are adventurous. Our first stop was the village of Margaree which is a name I always associated with Cape Breton. However, I did learn during this trip that a lot of Cape Bretoners migrated to Newfoundland in the 1800's, particularly to the southwest coast and the Port au Port peninsula which we will visit later on this trip. The drive along the Lighthouse Route to Rose Blanche passes many scenic coves like the one in the photo I've added from where you can look back and see the Channel Head lighthouse and Port aux Basques.

Continuing on the Lighthouse Route we reached the intriguingly named Isle aux Morts which got its portentous name from the many shipwrecks in the area that took so many lives that the place was literally an Island of the Dead. Almost paradoxically, it gained a reputation for saving lives through the exploits of the Harvey family and their Newfoundland dog Hairyman, who on two occasions rescued almost 200 ship wrecked people from almost certain death. Thus was born the legend of the Newfoundland dog.  Today you can walk the Harvey Trail close to where these rescues took place and visit the Harvey grave site on the way. For us, this will have to wait for our next visit.

The Lighthouse Route from Isle aux Morts to Rose Blanche is narrow, twisty and oh so beautiful. This was our first chance to appreciate the stark beauty of almost all of coastal Newfoundland. The highlight is almost certainly Barachois Falls which you can reach in an easy 20 minute walk along a wide path that is mostly on wooden steps or boardwalk.

Not far past Barachois Falls on the Lighthouse Route you come to the bumpy, but short road to the La Poile passenger ferry which services the tiny outport with less than 90 permanent residents. While we won't be taking that on this trip we did spend some time exploring the old cemetery nearby. Just as the outports are slowly dying, so too is this cemetery, which was becoming overgrown and eventually will all but disappear. Like the waterfalls, this was only the first of many abandoned cemeteries we would come across in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Contrary what one would think, Rose Blanche is not a French version of white rose, but rather a corruption of the term Roche Blanche or white rock. That becomes evident at Diamond Cove where you can see quartz veins wide enough to be seen from miles around and well out to sea. The town of Rose Blanche is a tale of boom and bust. Settled in the early 1800's it was a beneficiary of the outport resettlement programs that offered incentives for outport dwellers to leave their under served communities and move to larger ones. Once Rose Blanche got a road to it and electricity in 1961 it was a preferred spot for resettlement in southwest Newfoundland. It also got a large fish processing plant that provided employment for these resettlers. But, when the cod fishery collapsed so did Rose Blanche. There are fewer people here now than in 1869. But it does have one great thing going for it, the Rose Blanche Lighthouse which is unique in Newfoundland and most of North America for that matter.

The lighthouse was built in 1871, but it's no ordinary lighthouse. While the building itself was designed by the local lighthouse inspector, the lighting apparatus was designed by the legendary Stevenson family of Scotland of whom the writer Robert Louis Stevenson was also a member and an occasional lighthouse builder's apprentice. I've visited many Stevenson lighthouses in Scotland including one at Turnberry, built on the site of a ruined castle where Robert the Bruce was born. They are considered to be the apex of lighthouse design and lighthouse aficionados come from around the world just to see and photograph them.

I've included several photos of the exterior and interior of the lighthouse. Standing on the highest point of land there is a fantastic view in all directions.

The Rose Blanche trail is also a great place to get a primer on Newfoundland wild flowers and berries. There are at least two dozen different plant species identified. There is also an unusual rock formation, Praying Hands Rock.

Back at the parking area it is definitely worth visiting the gift shop which has locally made crafts at ridiculously low prices. My wife bought a hand knit puffin doll for our granddaughter and a crocheted baby's blanket for a new born niece for less than $40.00.

So don't rush to Gros Morne once you land in Newfoundland, but consider driving the Rose Blanche Lighthouse Route.‬

‪We had a lovely visit to the Rose Blanche lighthouse. The trail system leading to the lighthouse is well maintained and immaculate! The tour guide inside the lighthouse was informative. The views were spectacular and who knew Rose Blanche actually originated because of the Roches Blanches of the Cape surrounding the town!‬

‪We visited the lighthouse and were very impressed with the history of the structure and the beautiful views. Only a short hike from the parking area. Unfortunately the lighthouse was not open to tour due to COVID-19 but still worth the visit. ‬

‪The admission allows you to visit the museum, see a film on the restoration of the lighthouse as well as enter the lighthouse. There is a trail to the lighthouse with markers to point out the native plants and flowers. Take your time on the walk to drink in the scenery and the beauty of the rugged coastline.Then you reach the lighthouse and can go inside which is a step back in time. The views are awesome.Don't forget to visit the well stocked gift shop. There is also a clean restroom for your use.‬

‪The lighthouse was a step back in history. The climb to the top offered beautiful views. This lighthouse is made out of granite from local quarries. The drive to the lighthouse was even more impressing to us. The dramatic changes in the terrain and landscape. You should make the effort to visit. Watch the movie‬
