In the trailer for the upcoming Aquaman movie, I noticed a scenic location I’m intimately familiar with: Newfoundland’s very own East Coast Trail!
Specifically, the towering cliffs halfway between Torbay and Flatrock are where young Aquaman gets his first swimming lessons, diving down from dizzying heights into the waters of Whale Cove…
The trailer flashes past these beautiful cliffs in a matter of seconds, but we may get a better look when the movie comes out next month.
Until that time, if you want to visit the site of these cliffside superhero antics yourself, you’ll find it on Father Troy’s Trail. Whale Cove is #7 on my shortlist of easy hikes on the East Coast Trail near St. John’s. 🙂
