Codroy Valley

Sheltered by the Long Range Mountains, The Codroy Valley is the perfect destination for hikers, history lovers, and birders alike.

In the Codroy Valley, farms and fishing have coexisted for centuries. This fertile valley has a feel unique in Newfoundland’s landscape.


Made up of 15 communities, the area has rich agricultural land and dramatic seaside cliffs. Here you’ll find the Cape Anguille Lighthouse at the most westerly point of the island of Newfoundland and the Grand Codroy Estuary Ramsar Site, which is recognized by the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance and as an international Important Bird Area (IBA). Take a hike along the riverbank and watch migrating birds, raptors and songbirds in their natural habitat.


The community of Robinsons is located along Route 404. The village of Robinsons has been on colonial maps since about 1798. The headland and community were named after John Robinson from Ireland who lived in a cave in Robinson’s Head.
