In this small fishing village, 12 miles from the Peninsula at Bayside, you can see rock formations that have attracted nature-lovers from around the world. Combined with the sombre beauty of the Swiss Air Monument a mile down the coast, this stretch of ocean and rugged, rocky coastline remains one of Canada's truly natural wonders.


The old fishing village at Prospect

The hiking trails at Indian Point reveal spectacular ocean vistas and monumental islands of rock that inspire both awe and respect for Canada's natural beauty.

The pristine and historic village of Prospect is a wonderful place to explore, and it also provides a perfect launch site for kayaking the islands and islets that dot the surrounding area.
