    Quite near to Makkovik is the community of Postville. Postville was originally called The Post. It was the former-site of a Hudson's Bay trading post. The original trading post closed down in the mid-1800's but locals continued to refer to the region as The Post.

    Today, Postville is about 250 people. The majority of them are Labrador Inuit Association members and a substantial minority of them espouse the Pentecostal faith.

    The coastal boat sails from Makkovik to Postville and there is also aircraft that fly back and forth but an intrepit hiker could easily walk traverse the Makkovik Peninsula and arrive a Postville which is situated in the midst of beautiful Kaipokok Bay.
