The Town of Cupids

Nestled in the Heart of Conception Bay, the Town of Cupids, 80 kilometers West of St. John’s boasts a landscape of historic significance. A community of 761, Cupids bears the title of the first English settlement in Canada, settled by John Guy, a British merchant from Bristol, England and thirty-nine Planters in 1610. An Archaeological Digsite, the Cupids Legacy Centre, a Family History Resource Centre, seascape hiking trails and breath taking views span Seaforest Drive, the central road through the town. Incorporated in 1965, the Municipality of Cupids on the Baccalieu Trail, offers walking trails that venture through the resettled communities down in Burnt Head. See kayakers paddling through the Arch down in Noder Cove and picnic by a rambling brook; or take in a Shakespearean Experience with Perchance Theatre or the annual Cuper’s Cove Soiree in August. Cupids has something for everyone. Come see for yourself
