Bordered by an 11-km beach of fine sand, the village of Pointe-aux-Anglais owes its name to a shipwreck that occurred offshore in the era of New France. Learn the fascinating story of this major maritime disaster, and much more, at the Louis-Langlois Museum.

Early summer is the perfect time to fish for capelin, those small silver fish that come to spawn on nearby beaches by the thousands.

Local points of interest include: the 100-year-old church cemetery behind Saint-Paul-de-la-Pointe-aux-Anglais, and a hiking trail along the beach. There is also a rest area nearby.

Ice cream lovers (or anyone wanting to beat the heat) should stop at the village convenience store for a delicious cold treat!
