|Bay Bulls is a vibrant, growing and family-oriented community
of 1200 people situated on the Southern Shore of the Avalon Peninsula in
Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
Just a 25 minute drive from downtown St. John's (capital city of Newfoundland and Labradors ), Bay Bulls is one of those rare places that manages to maintain a small town feel yet provide easy access to a metropolitan center. Bay Bulls was originally founded more than 400 years ago to accommodate the fishing industry that still plays an important role in the local economy today. The Town has also diversified over the past several decades to the point where local businesses now provide valuable agricultural, manufacturing, industrial and marine supply services to key global clients.The close proximity of our safe harbour to international trade routes for offshore oil and gas fields has Bay Bulls well positioned to continue taking advantage of future opportunities. Indeed this is a 'must see' place with much potential yet to be realized.
