Bunyan's Cove is located in a small cove on the south side of Clode Sound, about 15 minutes from Port Blandford on Route 233.

It was one of the latest areas to be settled in Bonavista Bay. Bunyan's Cove was first settled by George and Joseph Martin and their mother Elizabeth in the late 19th century. They left Elliston in a small rowboat with the idea of moving further up the bay. They landed in the upper part of Bunyan's Cove which they named "Peter's Cove". As time went on, more and more people continued to move to Bunyan's Cove, settling in the middle and lower parts of the cove.

Even today, locals still call the upper section of this quaint little community Peter's Cove. Here, the view of the Bay is breathtaking. You can watch boats traveling up and down the Bay on any beautiful summer day.

In Bunyan's Cove there are three small convenience stores, a Post Office, a Gas Service Station and Garage, a Plant Nursery, a well known battered chicken wholesale business called Aunt Minnie's Chicken a Strawberry Farm and a Dairy Farm. There is also a Lion's Club and a Volunteer Fire Department in Bunyan's Cove.
