The beauty of the Îles-de-la-Madeleine (or Magdalen Islands) is as rich as the hearts of the people who call this region home. The wonderful multicolored houses, the beaches of fine sand and the islands’ local products inevitably amaze visitors. The main activities around the islands include cruises, sailing, swimming, seabird-watching and even visiting the power plant.

Easily accessible, the numerous beaches of the Magdalen Islands invite you to take long and invigorating walks, to swim and to sunbathe. The water around the Islands generally reaches around 18°C in mid-August, while it can reach over 20°C in the lagoons and bays. At the beach, you can also meditate in front of the sea and even build sandcastles. Actually, did you know that since 1987, the Islands have hosted the largest amateur sand castle building contest in the world?
