Prospect & Terence Bay

Home to fishermen for over 200 years, the community of Prospect has a connection to the sea even deeper than the sea itself. Let the gigantic granite outcroppings from which the ocean carved this area set the backdrop as you experience all that the Prospect area has to offer. Explore a shipwreck, wander the streets of a miniature town, or picnic on a lakeside beach. Learn to kayak or fine-tune your golfing skills all while soaking in the culture of this colorful seaside region.
