Here's the map. I've done this as an overnight tour from St. John's, but today it was out and back with a short stop for photos and to breathe in the sea air. At the end of Gallows Cove Road on the south side of the bay there's a beautiful cobble beach with flat, grassy fields at the far end, which are ideal for camping (see photo at left). You can set up your tent so that you have a view of the islands just offshore. On one occasion Deborah and I woke in the morning to find seals swimming nearby. Today I saw only a couple of whale spouts but they weren't breaching.
