Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse sits at the entrance to Bonne Bay
Bonne Bay is located on the western side of the island of Newfoundland, Canada. It is a part of Gros Morne National Park. There are four communities on Bonne Bay; Rocky Harbour, Norris Point, Woody Point and Glenburnie-Birchy Head-Shoal Brook. Bonne Bay has a population of about 3500 people. Fishers from Trout River and other communities also fish in Bonne Bay.
The Bay has a main entrance portion and two Arms, East Arm and South Arm, both of which have wooded coves and beach landings. Bonne Bay was carved out approximately 10,000 years ago by two large glaciers in each one of the arms. The glaciers then came together in the middle part of the Bay and continued to push on out to the Ocean.
