Welcome to the

Town of Crow Head

Twillingate Island, Newfoundland

 

Crow Head - is a small out port town on the north Twillingate Island, of some two hundred and twenty residents. It is situated 1.7 kilometers (or 1 mile) from the end of Route 340 - where you arrive at the picturesque Long Point Lighthouse, built in 1875.  Crow Head is now the proud owner of the Long Point Light Station, receiving the land, turned over from the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans on Feb.24, 2005, and is recognized as a Federal Heritage Building.

The Long Point Viewing platform is a project developed by the Twillingate Islands Tourism Association (TITA).  Along side of the Lighthouse, accessible by a long covered walkway, is the original residence of the lighthouse keepers (named a Heritage Building), and accompanying equipment houses.  There is plenty of vehicle parking including Bus Tours.  Beautiful hiking trails lead down to Sea Breeze Park and other areas listed below.
