The Area

St. Anthony Bight was known to the French as St. Mein Bay. The settlement was also a fishing station for the French, but was less favored by them than nearby St. Anthony.

St. Anthony-Bight has a 100-year-old house owned by Mr. John Pilgrim. There is a looped hiking trail about 2 kms outside of the town, known as St. Anthony-Bight Loop Trail. St. Anthony-Bight is also known as the “Iceberg Graveyard”, as icebergs come to rest in the coves and melt.
