Red Bay

Red Bay is a small fishing village located in Labrador, Canada. It is situated on the southern coast of the Strait of Belle Isle, which separates Labrador from the island of Newfoundland. Red Bay is known for its rich history, being the site of the Basque whaling station and the first Basque settlement in North America.

Red Bay is home to a diverse population of about 1,500 people. The majority of the population is of Basque descent, with a smaller percentage of Inuit and other ethnicities. The economy of Red Bay is largely based on fishing, as well as eco-tourism.

The area has a long and fascinating history, which dates back to 1530 when the first Basque whaling station was established in the area. The station was used to hunt bowhead whales, and the area was a major source of whale oil for the Basques. Remnants of the whaling station can still be seen in the area today, including a cemetery and a whaling boat.

Red Bay is also home to an important historical site, the Red Bay National Historic Site. This site is dedicated to the memory of the Basque whalers and their contribution to the history of Canada. The site includes a museum, a replica of the whaling station, and a number of archaeological sites.

Red Bay is a beautiful and unique place, with a rich cultural and historical heritage. It is a great place to visit and explore, and is sure to provide visitors with an unforgettable experience.
