Red Bay National Historic Site is part of the Labrador Coastal Drive. Established by Basque mariners in the 16th century at the northeastern tip of Canada on the shore of the Strait of Belle Isle, this archaeological site provides the earliest, most complete and best preserved testimony of the European whaling tradition. In June 2013, Red Bay Basque Whaling Station was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
