The lovely ocean-front community of Pouch Cove, NL, is one of the earliest settlements in Newfoundland (1611) when its rich fishing territories attracted British fishermen to the area. However with mass fishing in NL waters, the northern cod stocks were said to have dangerously declined in number and, in 1992, the Canadian government placed a moratorium on the fishery and the fishing industry as it was known became a thing of the past
Today, Pouch Cove is a perfect spot to catch up on well-deserved rest and relaxation. Free from industrial noise and the fast pace of city life, Pouch Cove is well positioned to provide an "away from it all" escape. Enjoy life in the country and experience the smell of fresh country air, the sights of mighty cliffs and cascading mountains, and the roar of the mighty Atlantic ocean pounding the coastal shoreline. Wake to the sounds of wild birds singing in the trees and the shimmering glow of the early morning sun's rays on the ocean surface. In season, it is quite common to see icebergs and whales in the coastal waters. As the community is conveniently located just 20 min from St. John's, it has the distinction of offering the best of both worlds
