Welcome to St. Anthony
The port of St. Anthony is located on the tip of Newfoundland’s Great Northern Peninsula. Here, history and scenery come together to form a landscape that will capture your imagination.
St. Anthony is home to medical missionary Sir Wilfred Grenfell. He travelled here in the 1890s to investigate the lives of the people who fished on “the Labrador.” This was the start of Dr. Grenfell’s lifelong work in Northern Newfoundland and coastal Labrador, he built hospitals, orphanages, nursing stations and co-operatives. In 1927 he was knighted for his years of service along this coast by King Henry V. Explore his legacy at the Grenfell Historic Properties.
Fishing Point Municipal Park offers an extensive network of trails that provide astonishing vantage points to view coastline, seabirds, icebergs, and whales. Here, you will also find the Fox Point Lighthouse.
