Point Amour Lighthouse is off Hwy. 510 on L'Anse Amour Rd. At a lofty 33 metres (109 ft.), the 1858 Point Amour Lighthouse is the second tallest lighthouse ever built in Canada. It was built with locally quarried limestone, and its massive walls are almost 2 metres (6 ft.) thick at the base.
You can climb 132 steps to the lantern to view a breathtaking panorama of the coastline and the Strait of Belle Isle; if you're lucky you'll spot a whale or an iceberg. There also is a picturesque interpretive walking trail along the shore.
A two-story museum in the lighthouse keeper's home contains a collection of artifacts tracing 4 centuries of maritime history.
Picnicking is permitted. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
