Île-du-Havre-Aubert

The Île-du-Havre-Aubert is the biggest of the islands inhabited by French-speaking people. This island has two main villages, Havre-Aubert and Bassin. The village of Bassin is located on the west part of the island and has a panoramic road from which one can see the rock Corps-Mort. This road passes by the art workshop of La Baraque, where one can visit the artists’ workshops, and by the lighthouse of Anse-à-la-Cabane. A little bit farther on the chemin de la Montagne, Le Site d’Autrefois will make you discover the traditional life of the fishermen. The Parc des Bois-Brûlés on the chemin du Bassin is also an interesting site where a hiking trail is available for everyone. In the village of Havre-Aubert, you can find the Association culturelle de Havre-Aubert which presents the play “Mes Îles, Mon Pays” (My Islands, my Country). This show will make you discover the history of the Islands. On the Havre-Aubert beach, you can assist to the annual Sandcastle Contest, and in the same village, you can also visit the Centre nautique de l’Istorlet, which offer all sorts of water activities, sea kayak excursions to see the caves and cliffs, boat excursions to observe lighthouses and sea mammals or snorkelling with seals. The most important attraction in Havre-Aubert is without any doubt the Site Historique de La Grave, a small shingle beach where fisheries and commerce were established before. On this site, you will get the chance to visit the Aquarium des Îles where one can observe seals, fish, shellfish and molluscs. In Cap Gridley, The Musée de la Mer presents a permanent exhibition called “Les Laboureurs du Golfe” and other temporary exhibitions on different themes. On this island, you will find Amerindian sites, nature, good restaurants, cultural activities, shops and cafés. The island of Havre-Aubert is part of the Association of the Most Beautiful Villages of Quebec.
