You can also taste the Islands! It’s possible to eat and drink well everywhere in the archipelago. From seasonal snacks to fine cuisine, the Madelinots will no doubt know how to satisfy your hunger.

It’s also possible to buy seafood and traditional meals of the Islands at the reputable Poissonerie-Caféteria at Gros-Cap (take out counter / cafeteria / foresee a 30-second walk from the motel). Pêcheries Gros-Cap: 521 chemin Gros-Cap (418) 986-2710 / (418) 986-6784.

You are treated to a multitude of sports activities during all seasons. Kayaking into the sunset, walking for hours on endless beaches, swimming, golfing, horse riding, scuba diving, bicycling, caving, and water-skiing are some examples of things to do. When you think of the Islands, you think of the wind. The omnipresence of the good Lord’s breeze brings happiness to windsurfers and kite surfers of this world. Do you need a kite?

The Acadian festivities begin with the arrival of the month of August. To celebrate their roots, the Madelinots meet at La Grave. The contest of building small boats is one of the most popular events of the festivities.
• Acadian Festival, La Grave, Havre-Aubert (early August)

Every year in August, the famous sand castle competition is held at the Sandy Hook beach. This activity, which is a major event during the tourist season, will surely please the whole family.

You will be charmed by the mythic and unique Entry Island, a place inhabited by a handful of Anglophone families. A visit to this small island is a must for those who seek a change of scenery or peace of mind.

The sea is the livelihood of the Madelinots. A permit is required for the majority of fishing; however, shell clam and mackerel fishing is accessible to all. Smiles are guaranteed!

There are plenty of souvenirs for your close ones who could not accompany you to the Islands. Souvenir boutiques, workshops, paint galleries, recitals and bars, glassware…you will find gift ideas for those who are dear to you. What a better way to bring a piece of the Islands back home.
