Trinity Bay, inlet of the Atlantic Ocean, 80 mi (129 km) long, SE Newfoundland, N.L., Canada, between the Avalon Peninsula and the mainland. With its small fishing settlements and canneries, it preserves the flavor of 19th cent. Newfoundland. Trinity, a small port on the west shore, was the western terminal of the first permanent transatlantic cable laid (1866) by Cyrus West Field.
