Welcome to Barge Bay ...

So far, we have found very little information about Barge Bay. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Barge Bay to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Barge Bay, please Contact Us.


Barge Bay was located on the southeast coast of Labrador (on the Gulf of Saint Lawrence at the Strait of Belle Isle).

We aren't confident of the location of Barge Bay, so consider the above location as an estimate.<2>

Time Zone: The area where Barge Bay was located is in the Newfoundland Time Zone (NST/NDT) and observes daylight saving time. The time zone in French: NST- Heure Normale de Terre-Neuve (HNT).

Note: If you leave Barge Bay and travel west, you will leave Newfoundland Time and cross into the Atlantic Standard Time Zone (AST). In addition, you will be moving from an area that observes daylight saving time to one that does not.

If Barge Bay still existed, it would have been in the (709) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Barge Bay, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Barge Bay) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Barge Bay. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Barge BayOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Barge Bay. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 51.8083, Longitude: -56.2156    
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<5>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
