A "bight" is the bend in a coast forming an open bay. Trinity Bight, from the north shore, contains the communities of English Harbour, Champney's East, Champney's Arm, Champney's West, Trinity East, Port Rexton, Trinity, Goose Cove, Dunfield, Trouty, Old Bonaventure and New Bonaventure. These communities are gems - colonial culture brightened by buoyant palettes of Atlantic colours: the sea, sky, hills and the carefully-applied paint on treasured homes and buildings. Brilliant summer comes alive in the communities of Trinity Bight. Of all Newfoundland's heritage communities, Trinity perhaps defines us best. Trinity is one of the most historically-significant communities in the province. The deep regard and respect for the past goes back farther here than anywhere else on the island. Trinity was a crucial pioneer settlement, with some of the first clergy, doctors and professional tradespeople in Newfoundland. Drive north from Clarenville on Route 230, taking a right onto Route 239 - Trinity Harbour comes into view like unwrapping a present. Port Rexton is nearby.
