Bay Roberts is located on the north shore of Conception Bay on the northeastern Avalon Peninsula in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The growth of the local economy can be connected to the town’s proximity to other major Newfoundland markets, by road and by water.GeographyThe town is connected by Veterans' Memorial Highway to Route 1 (the Trans-Canada Highway) leading to all points in the province. St. John's, the capital city, is only 90 km away. Argentia, the eastern terminal for Marine Atlantic's Gulf Ferry Service is 70 km away. Local businesses have easy access to more than half of the province’s population. As a result, the town is a centre for major transportation and distribution, providing services for the Avalon Peninsula and surrounding areas. With 5,818 people, it is one of the larger towns in Newfoundland, and the largest on the Baccalieu Trail. The town has a provincially recognized museum called the "Road to Yesterday," and the "Shoreline Heritage Walk" has been developed. The Shoreline Heritage Walk is a 4 km walking trail which passes through Juggler's Cove and French's Cove in Bay Roberts East and celebrates the early history of the town.Bay Roberts HarbourBay Roberts offers year-round shipping services through its large port, which is similar in size to the harbour in St. John's and can accommodate the largest of ships. It is protected from ocean storms by Fergus Island at its entrance. The bay and harbour have clear shorelines, without rocks or headland protrusions. As a result of its size and outstanding features, it has been approved for anchorage by marine insurance companies.
