In 1858 the Point Amour Lighthouse was built to help sailors through the dangerous waters of the Strait of Belle Isle between Labrador and Newfoundland. Designated as a provincial historic site in 1994, the lighthouse and keeper's residence are open to the public from mid-June to late September. Exhibits explain the history of the Strait of Belle Isle and lighthouse technology, and give a sense of the lives of the families who worked as lighthouse keepers. The lighthouse is 33 m tall, making it the second tallest in Canada, and from its top, visitors can get a panoramic view of the coast of Labrador.
