The biggest rock of them all, Newfoundland, has plenty of smaller examples.

I really hope this was never used as a dungeon.

The big pit of the Dungeons with its two sea arches, while interesting to see and watch the water flow in and out, would not be a great place to spend any time.

To be honest, there’s not much to say about this one. The pair of sea arches are two of the more solid ones I’ve researched, built into the land instead of standing free in the ocean. It makes it a little strange that they exist; I can’t quite figure that one out, but there we are.

Getting to Newfoundland is a bit of a struggle, and if you’re travelling outside of St. John’s a car is pretty much a must, so you have a basic idea. From St. John’s it’s a solid three-and-a-half hours and then some, so you’ll likely want to do it on your way through, instead of a day trip. On the upside, there’s lots to see in the Bonavista area, so it’s worth a longer trip.

Ranking two on TripAdvisor for the much talked about Bonavista Bay area isn’t too bad. It’s the edge of the country and has some rugged landmarks. As it’s a pair of sea arches, the Natural Arch and Bridge Society have a profile on it, for some more techinical info. For more tourism info, check out the province’s page on the provincial park here.
