Makkovik (Maggovik) is a port town in Canada's Newfoundland and Labrador province, with population around 400 (Inuit people). The local economy is traditionally based on fishing (snow crab). Makkovik is approx 215 km (134 mi) northeast of Vali/Happy Valley-Goose Bay (Nunatsiavut's principal seaport and airport). Nunatsiavut is an autonomous Inuit Land Claims Area declared in 1993 by the Nunavut Land Claim Agreement.

The town can be accessed only by ships/boats and aircraft.

During summer, regularly scheduled weekly ferries (leaving roundtrip from Vali/Happy Valley-Goose Bay) interlink Rigolet, Makkovik, Postville, Hopedale, Natuashish, Nain. As cruise port, Makkovik is visited by smaller-sized (expedition type) ships and ice-strengthened superyachts.

Makkovik Airport (approx 1 km / 0,6 mi west of downtown) serves regular flights (by PAL Airlines) connecting to CFB Goose Bay Airport (Canadian Forces Base), Hopedale, Rigolet, Natuashish, Postville, Nain. Flights to other Canadian airports are via CFB Goose Bay. Makkovik Airport can handle only small planes and helicopters.
