Forrester's Point is located just off Route 430 north of Pond Cove. Forrester's Point is a traditional fishing community. It has a general store that has served residents since 1938. Forrester's Point is located 0.5 kms from Currant Island. This is the island where most of the older residents of Forrester's Point lived before resettlement in the 1960's. Before resettlement, very few families lived in Forrester's Point. Forrester's Point is also located close to the St. Genevieve River.
