Beach Point Harbour

This small summer community is right on the end of Long Point on the Port Au Port Peninsula. The point is about 14 miles long and in places is only 100yds wide.

I expected Long Point to be a sand bar, but it is rocky and quite high in places.

You have to give the north end a wide berth.

Meriah is in the outer part of the harbour. The wharf is very high at low tide.

I think there is a minimum of 6 feet in the inner harbour but it was quite busy with small fishing boats.

The inner harbour.

There were about 10 houses occupied for the summer. Herring was being fished in late August.
