Welcome to the Municipality of Burgeo. We are a remarkably picturesque community located on the south west coast (Route 480) of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. With a population of 1400 the Town offers something for everyone - treat yourself to a delicious meal at one of our restaurants and stay in our local motel, B & B, or other rental spaces. There are grocery stores, a clothing store, two churches (Anglican and United) and a Roman Catholic Chapel, a drug store, several community halls and service clubs, a ball field and arena, post office, liquor store, health care center and drug store. There is also a modern school which houses a kindergarten to grade 12 system as well as a family resource centre and public library. The public library has high speed Internet.

If you arrive at our ferry dock you will find ferry connections to three other smaller, more remote communities: Ramea, Grey River, and Francois. There are travel schedules listed for these communities on the government website: www.gov.nl.ca/ferryservices/. In Burgeo there is also a docking facility for yachts that includes full access to showers, electricity, and high speed Internet. There are some beautiful walking trails, one at Aaron’s Arm, another is a lookout in the center of Town, and others are found within our Sandbanks Provincial Park. You can also enjoy a leisurely stroll around Town. People in our small community are friendly, they will say hello or pass a nod as you walk by. We are home to the Sand and Sea festival which takes place each year during the last week of July. More information can be found at www.burgeosandandsea.com. We invite you to come and experience all that our great Town has to offer.

Our Municipal Council and residents are proud to call Burgeo our home and we encourage you to join us. Spend a day indulging in the tranquility of our environment, start or grow your business with us, or become a permanent member of our extraordinary community.

Welcome to Burgeo!

Sincerely,

Mayor Barter
