 If you enjoy hiking and time outside, Arnold's Cove is a nature lover's dream come true! We have three beautiful hiking trails. Arthur's Hill branches off the Old Cabot Highway and offers a fabulous panoramic view of Arnold's Cove and area. The Bordeaux Trail (approximately 10 km return) meanders alongside the rugged coastline to Bordeaux where the original settlers to Arnold's Cove made their homes in the early 1930s. If you like a more challenging hike, our Otter Rub Trail to the High Head offers a great hiking adventure. Your reward at reaching the lookout is a stunning view of Placentia Bay. There are benches along the trail to enjoy the view and watch the boats come and go. The first part of the Otter Rub Trail branches off to the War Path, a short walk to  a lookout platform with storyboards about the US soldiers stationed in the area during World War II.

Our bird sanctuaries offer bird watchers the opportunity to view a variety of migratory birds, and our Placentia Bay Lookout will give you a breathtaking panoramic view of Placentia Bay, the many islands that were resettled in the 1960s and the industry that makes this area one of the most prosperous in the province. We also have kilometers of beaches to explore and comb for treasure. 


If you're interested in living in our town or setting up your business here, we have residential lots available and our commercial/industrial park has large serviced lots at reasonable rates. Please call the town office at (709) 463-2323 for more information. We would be delighted to welcome you to our community!

Mayor, Town of Arnold's Cove

As Mayor of Arnold's Cove, it is  my pleasure to welcome you to our town's website and our town. 

Arnold's Cove is a vibrant, growing community nestled in the bottom of Placentia Bay. We are the service centre for the isthmus area with amenities such as a grocery store, restaurant, liquor store, motels, hardware store, long term care facility, seniors' housing, volunteer fire department, marine supply store, library, wharfage, and a gas station to name a few. We are strategically located in the most industry-dense area of the province with the IMTT-NTL, Ltd., transshipment terminal in our backyard and the province's only bio-diesel refinery located next door. The Bull Arm fabrication site is a few kilometers west of our town via the TCH.
