Iles de la Madelaine

Second biggest island, the Île-du-Cap-aux-Meules invites you to admire the beautiful beaches and nice landscapes of the three villages it has: Cap-aux-Meules, Étang-du-Nord and Fatima. Cap-aux-Meules is the arrival port for the ferry boats, the first place where visitors discover the Magdalen Islands. The port of Cap-aux-Meules is the point of departure for the boat excursions to fish, observe cliffs and visit the Île d’Entrée. From the chemin du Quai, one can have access to stairs that lead to the Sentier du Littoral which runs along the cliff for 1 mile and lead to a small beach. The nature’s lovers must visit the Parc des Bucks. There you can hike and get to very interesting scenic points that offer a view on the island and its neighbours. In the little village of Étang-du-Nord, visit the parc de Gros-Cap, its cliffs and caves. On the site, you will have the chance to make sea kayak excursions and find a campground and a youth hostel. On your way back, you will admire the wooden church of Lavernière, claimed historical monument of Quebec since 1992, one of the biggest wooden churches that still exist in North America. On the chemin Boisville, you can stop at the Club de golf des Îles, a 9 holes golf course and farther, you can visit the fishing harbour of Étang-du-Nord. The Market Place will also charm you with its shops, its boîte à chansons and its restaurant with terrasse. On the cap Hérissé, you will see the Étang-du-Nord lighthouse where one can observe the sun set. Finally, in the village of Fatima, a hiking and a cycling trail are available and run along the cliffs. Take the sentier d’interprétation Le Barachois, which will lead you to Cap-Vert and will make you discover the unique humid environment of the Islands. For those who would prefer to lie in the sun, the Digue and Pedalo beaches attract many swimmers. In the island, the Butte du Vent offers an exceptional view on the archipelago.
