Location of Cape Bauld in Newfoundland

Cape Bauld is a headland located at the northeasternmost point of Great Northern Peninsula on the island of Newfoundland in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Cape Bauld, slightly south and east of Cape Norman, delineates the eastern end of the Strait of Belle Isle.

Cape Bauld is located on the north side of Quirpon Island. A lighthouse was constructed at the cape in 1884.

The English explorer John Cabot may have landed at Cape Bauld on June 24, 1497, though Cape Bonavista is also mentioned as a potential landing point.
