Welcome to our website!
Long Point Centre is located on the scenic site of Long Point Lighthouse perched 300 feet above the sea in Twillingate, Newfoundland.
The Long Point Lighthouse, built in 1876, has been one of the biggest tourist destinations for decades. The Long Point Centre offers visitors an opportunity to glimpse into the history of Newfoundlanders and discover why we have lived in harmony with the sea and surrounding nature through generations. Our visual exhibits ensure an understanding of why we have a sense of achievement and identity from traditional hunting, trapping, and fishing pursuits.
Every year, thousands of visitors are amazed at the panoramic ocean view before them where they may experience the sight of sea birds, whales, seals, or icebergs.
Depending upon the weather, visitors may hear the mournful groan of the fog horn or feel the stinging easterly winds against their faces; on brighter days some may stroll along the meandering groomed trails or, for the more adventuresome, hike the cliff trails to Sleepy Cove while inhaling the bracing, salty air.
