Bell Isle, Conception Bay, consists of an isolated mass of shale rock. Its gentle slopes and rich soil form a singular contrast to the rugged coast of the mainland. The Beach is one of the two settlements on this island. A semicircular beach of shingle has been thrown up by the sea under the cliffs ; and on this are built the houses of the fishermen, outside them are the fish flakes and stores ; and stretching into the water, the fish stages.
