Let yourself be charmed by the beauty of the Îles de la Madeleine! Its long beaches along its carved cliffs, its everfresh seefood and the more than warm welcome of its inhabitants will surely delight you. Hope to see you soon!
The Île de Pointe-aux-Loups is the smallest inhabited island and has only one small township with about fifty houses. On the north side of the island one can find a small fishing harbour and a magnificent beach and on the south side there are a lagoon and a quay with a launching ramp for small boats. If you are interested in palaeontology, archaeology or shellfish farming, La Maison du Héron proposes a collection of artefacts that belonged to the Amerindians who lived in the islands some thousands years ago. On the Île-de-Pointe-aux-Loups, the Dune du Nord and Pointe-aux-Loups beaches are ones of the most beautiful beaches on the islands and are easily accessible; however, they are also the most dangerous when the tides are high and when it’s windy. Be careful because these beaches are subject to very strong currents which can pull you off the coast.
