Portugal Cove

(4.4/5 based on 30 reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: wildlife areas
Portugal Cove-St. Philip's is a rural seashore community located on the eastern Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Portugal Cove-St. Philip's was amalgamated in 1992, and is home to an estimated 6,000 people. Just 10 – 15 minutes from the provincial capital, and covering 56.43 km², Portugal Cove-St. Philips is a rapidly growing community, and one of the largest municipalities in the Province. It borders the City of St. John's (provincial capital) to the east, and the Town of Paradise to the west. The current mayor is Moses Tucker, who was elected in September 2013.The town’s population is fairly young with an average age of 33.2 years. Most people work outside the community, commuting to St. John's or Mount Pearl, daily. Businesses within the community itself, however, are numerous and include farms, convenience stores, restaurants & cafes, construction, gardening centres, hair salons, garages & service stations, bed & breakfasts, and a taxi service. The inhabitants are predominantly unilingual (English) and white.The Town's ferry terminal provides daily access to and from Bell Island, and dozens of people commute from this tiny island to work in and around the capital city, daily.The Portugal Cove area has historically been predominantly Roman Catholic, and is served by Holy Rosary Church.The town motto is Where the Sun Meets the Sea. This motto is ironic however, since due to the positioning of Bell Island in Conception Bay, the sun never actually meets the sea at any point in time.
