Petty Harbour-Maddox Cove is a picturesque and historic fishing village on the eastern shore of the Avalon Peninsula and in the heart of Motion Bay, south of St. John’s. The site has been continuously occupied since at least 1598, predating the arrival of the Mayflower and making it one of the oldest European settlements in North America.
