Bell Island

Situated in Conception Bay, the island is approximately 9.5 km (6 mi) long by 3 km (2 mi) wide and 34 km2 (13 mi2) in area.

Situated in Conception Bay, the island is approximately 9.5 km (6 mi) long by 3 km (2 mi) wide and 34 km2 (13 mi2) in area. It is the largest of a number of islands in the Bay. On its eastern side the island is separated from the mainland of Newfoundland by a stretch of water known as the Tickle which is approximately 5 km (3 mi) wide. It is across this tickle that the ferry makes its daily trips to Portugal Cove, which is 14.5 km (9 mi) by road from St. John's. The road joining the capital with Portugal Cove was one of the first built in Newfoundland.
