Did you know ...
The name Twillingate comes from the French word "Toulinquet" which was given to the islands by French fishermen, who named them after a group of islands off the French coast, near Brest, also called Toulinquet.
To See & Do
Any drive on Twillingate island winds along the scenic coastline with wharfs, dorys, fishing boats, brightly painted fishing stages with sunlight shimmering off the water.
Twillingate's annual Fish Fun and Folk Festival takes place during the last week of July each year.
