Grand Bruit is a small isolated fishing village that you can only get to by boat.
It is located on the Southwest Coast of Newfoundland. The population is
approximately 50 full time residents.
The community is set in an isolated harbour with the Blue Hills in the background
and a waterfall roaring down the center of the village. The name of the town.
Grand Bruit in French means "great noise" which describes the waterfalls that can
be heard throughout the town.
Grand Bruit was settled in the 1800's by English and Jersey planters. They would
have been encouraged to come here to settle by the fishing merchants of Jersey.
Grand Bruit gives you the true experience of a Newfoundland outport. Some
traditional houses are over one hundred years old. The jellybean colored houses,
fishing shacks that line the shore and the fishing boats put you in the
Newfoundland spirit. Since, Grand Bruit has remained true to the olden days and
is one of the few secluded fishing villages of Newfoundland it has become a
popular stopping place for many yachters and kayakers worldwide.
