The Madeleine islands Canada
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Madeleine islands

Nature lovers should not be able to miss the Madeleine Islands. Located more than 120 miles off the coasts of Gaspésie, this archipelago consisting of a dozen islands offers huge sandy beaches, red sandstone cliffs and very picturesque and colourful wooden houses. Only seven islands are inhabited, but they all shelter a lot of animals such as seals, cormorants and piping plovers, which are an endangered species. The beaches are gorgeous, and despite the presence of the wind, very inviting for a swim in the summer.

The Magdalen Islands benefit from a mild and sunny climate in summer and in winter the sea air keeps the cold from setting in.
