Discover The Madeleine islands Canada

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.
