Lushes Bight-Beaumont-Beaumont North (Long Island) NL

Long Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, is one of the largest islands in Notre dame Bay, and it is here you will find the amalgamated municipality of Lushes Bight-Beaumont-Beaumont North. Beaumont was originally known as Ward’s Harbour and was settled in the early 1800s. It was renamed in 1921 to honour of the Long Island men who served in World War 1.

They say Long Island is a real get away, calm and peaceful. It is only reachable by ferry, from Pilley’s Island. There is one small convenience store on the island, as well as a museum/tea shop. The small school, which had just one remaining student, was slated for closure effective September 2016.
