Francois (generally pronounced "Franceway", sometimes written François) is a small coastal village in Southern Newfoundland, accessible by ferry.

Get in[edit]

Access to Francois is only by passenger ferry coming from the east or the west, on a limited schedule.

It also may be possible to solicit a ride from a local fisherman headed that way.

Get around[edit]

There are no car roads in Francois, only narrow paved walked ways which are also used by 4-wheelers.



There is a nice, fairly short hike up to a look out point just above the town, a good portion of which is boardwalked.

Visits to the local museum can be arranged on request, and there is a library and Community Access Program (CAP) site for internet access.


There is a general store from which you can buy food and other amenities.




Near the church in Francois, there is a simple camping site with picnic bench and outhouse.

Several residents also offer their homes for visitors to spend a few nights in. Nightly rates are available upon request and are very reasonable.
