Flower's Cove Hike 'n' Picnic     


A fun family or group outing....an experience you will thoroughly enjoy!!!!! 


"Flowers" is a generic term used in Italian for any rock just appearing on the surface of the water.  Just off of Flower's Cove are shoal outcrops of rock formation or "flowers."  It is assumed that Flower's Cove was named this by early settlers of the 1700's for this very reason . ​Flower's Cove is approximately 1.5 kms south east of the quaint little outport of Maberly.  The duration of the session is 3-5 hrs, sometimes shorter or longer, depending on conditions or what the customer wants.  While hiking along the trail you can view and take pictures of spectacular scenery the breathtaking rugged coastline has to offer.  The inconsistent topography is made up of different ecosystems populated with a diversity of flora and fauna.  On times it is also quite possible to spot wildlife such as whales and various avian such as the Bald Eagle.  The picnic site "Flower's Cove," is  a beachy inlet sheltered by cliffs on each side.  


Come and allow yourself the opportunity to have an amazing experience of a small, but stunning piece of Canada's most easterly coast.  Work up an appetite on the hike and be ready to enjoy a good 'ole' fashioned Newfoundland picnic of homemade food with a cup of tea made over a fire on the beach.  "There's nothing like a cup of tea in the great outdoors."  Also, while  relaxing at the Flower's Cove destination, you can refresh your feet with a little dabble in the cold but pristine Atlantic ocean.
