Rose Blanche – Harbour le Cou is a small town on Newfoundland's southwest shore, about 45 km from Port aux Basques. This community is located in a barren area on the east side of a small bay. In this bay there are 2 harbours that were mainly used to provide shelter for fishing vessels.

Formerly Rose Blanche was primarily a fishing community, until the Moratorium on Cod Fish was introduced in 1992. Scenery includes the rugged coastline, and the white and rocky cliffs of "Diamond Cove". Its restored lighthouse serves as a tourist attraction.
