Location of Bonne Bay in Newfoundland

Bonne Bay /ˈbɒni/ is a bay in Newfoundland, Canada. It is located on the western side of Newfoundland and separates Great Northern Peninsula from the rest of the island. It is a part of Gros Morne National Park. Bonne Bay has a population of about 7000 people.

It is separated into two sections: Inner Bonne Bay and Outer Bonne Bay. Inner Bonne Bay consists of two arms, one which is South which has wooded coves and beach landings. Outer Bonne Bay consists of the entrance to the fjord of Bonne Bay. Bonne Bay was carved out approximately 10,000 years ago by two large glaciers in each one of the arms. The glaciers then came together in the middle part of the Bay and continued to push on out to the Ocean.


Recreation in Bonne Bay consists of: Gros Morne National Park, Bonne Bay Marine station, kayak tours, Deer Lake insectarium, fishing and trouting, hiking, biking, boat tours, water taxis, and museums.
