Caption

You are viewing the Atlantic ocean from Cape Spear, Newfoundland and Labrador (NL), Canada, the most easterly point of land in North America. Tragically, many people have been swept into the sea by rogue waves near this point. A long fence and many signs are posted at the safe limits to warn of the danger. A wooden cross with 3 bronze plaques reminds ...

The area has been designated a Canadian National Historic Site. Naturally, the cape has hosted many lighthouses; the first from 1836. Now restored to circa 1939, the original lighthouse (not visible in this pano) is open for public viewing. The concrete lighthouse that is visible on the crest was built in 1955 as its replacement.

It takes about 20 minutes to drive to Cape Spear from St. John's; NL's capital city. The entrance to St. John's harbour can be seen as a dip in the land just to the right of the red Cape Spear sign. Next to this is Signal Hill with the Cabot Tower at its top.
