Spaniard's Bay is centrally located on the Avalon in Conception Bay North on the Baccalieu Trail on Route 70; approximately a 45 minute drive from St. John's. The name Spaniard's Bay is believed to have come from the Basque and Portuguese fishermen who frequented the port in the 16th and 17th century and referred to by the English as "Spaniards". Spaniard's Bay was a seasonal fishing community and eventually around 1776 English fishermen began to make it their home.
The Baccalieu Trail gets its name from the island at its northern tip. The word itself is derived either from the Portugese or Basque word for codfish. The coast is steeped with pirate history, being home to both Peter Easton and Gilbert Pike and his Irish princess bride Sheila Nageira. It’s also home to the arctic exploring sea captain Bob Bartlett, the first transatlantic cable and numerous colourful fishing communities and ports. Plan a full day to see what this beautiful coastline has to offer.
The Avalon bears a fitting name, reminiscent of the legend and romanticism of its misty, Arthurian island counterpart. The Avalon is full of the legends, lore, and history of the early adventurers who first laid claim to the New World. It is also home to the East Coast Trail, with more than 500 kilometres of scenic hikes, perfect for exploring our stunning coastline. This is a place full of beauty, culture, and the rugged drama of a seafaring peninsula that has weathered trials, triumphs, and everything in between.
