If you’ll be staying with us during the spring or summer months you may have the opportunity to see the capelin “roll”! This exciting phenomenon – in which capelin throw themselves upon the shore occurs each year due to the capelin’s reproductive behaviour. Their large number often attract the attention of, not only humans, but a variety of sea life; including birds, predatory fish and whales – All the better for your touring pleasure!
Only 5 minutes from the Silverwood Inn lies “Long Beach”; a scenic walk for any day of the week! Coincidentally this beach is also a fantastic place to watch this natural spectacle in action.
Kayaking in Clarke’s Beach
If you’re the adventurous type you’ll be excited to know that our location is only moments away from the beautiful coastline. Weather permitting, Clarke’s Beach is a favorite of local kayakers. Spend the day paddling leisurely along some of the most beautiful sights Newfoundland has to offer.
