Life on the Straits

By Linda Tancs

The Strait of Belle Isle is a waterway in eastern Canada that separates the Labrador Peninsula from the island of Newfoundland. You’ll get panoramic views of it from Point Amour Lighthouse, the second tallest light in Canada. You’ll also see icebergs and the wreck of HMS Raleigh in the distance. By car, the site is about 30 minutes north of the nearest airport at Blanc-Sablon, Québec, and is located in L’Anse Amour, a small village on the coast of the Strait that boasts the oldest known burial mound in North America.
