Harry’s Harbour, Newfoundland and Labrador, meets not one, but two different bays. Its south side sits on Western Arm, and its north side faces Green Bay. Harry’s Harbour’s multiple coves, sheltered crannies and small island make it a very picturesque place.



Harry’s Harbour has an interesting feel. There is a disproportionate number of streets for the size of the community, plus a surprising six way intersection. This points back to a time when the town wasn’t so quiet. The school closed years ago. The population of the town has dropped considerably and now a good percentage (possibly 50%) of the homes are essentially cabins/cottages and are not occupied 12 months of the year.

There is one very small convenience shop/take out, open only in the summer months. There is still a community library, where the librarian does a great job of initiating community events. There is no gas station. If you go there to take in the walking trail or hunt for the best beach rocks, be sure to take everything you need.
