L'Anse au Clair, Labrador (larger version)
The town of L'Anse au Clair was established by French settlers in the early 1700's. L'Anse au Clair, a french phrase meaning Clear Water Cove, is the southern-most community in Labrador and borders the Quebec community of Blanc Sablon. Settlers from Newfoundland and the south coast of England colonized L'Anse au Clair shortly after a border dispute in 1825.

This community has one of the nicest sandy beaches in the area and a walking trail that brings you to the Jersey Rooms, a site with foundations of buildings and stone walkways that were part of an 18th century fishing enterprise. Other walking trails in the community and along the shoreline will take you to Doctor's Path, Bubbling Sands, and Aunt Mary Jane's Playhouse.
