Fermeuse, Newfoundland

A tight entrance but once inside a well sheltered harbour and, St Johns apart, possibly the only other place on the Newfoundland east coast where one could feel happy sitting out a strong blow from the east.

There are 3 sets of wharves and a boatyard with ship lift, scattered around the inlet. Of these, the public wharf in Sheep's Head Cove is the most sheltered and has a floating pontoon with 3-4m at its outer end. Anchoring would also be possible at the head of the harbour just off the boatyard.

There is one convenience store and garage (which does not sell diesel) within easy walking distance of the wharf and a modern pub/restaurant with free wifi and occasional live music approximately 1km down the road.
