The Acadian Peninsula
We invite you to discover a land where joie de vivre and hospitality can be found everywhere you go! The Acadian Peninsula is surrounded by water with, on one side, the Chaleur Bay (part of the Most Beautiful Bays of the World Club) and, on the other, the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. It is the ideal place to enjoy fresh seafood, explore the many beaches, and participate in a number of water activities.
The cities of Tracadie-Sheila, Caraquet, Shippagan and Lamèque and their surroundings are opening their doors and welcome you to take part in a multitude of events all year long. Summer is the ideal time for festivals, concerts and other attractions, while winter holds many surprises in a magnificent white scenery. Winter lovers can enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing trails, sliding down snowy hills or simply relaxing with a hot chocolate in front of the fireplace.
And don’t forget that a good trip needs good food and a good bed! The Acadian Peninsula offers a great choice of restaurants that will allow you to try regional cuisine and excellent seafood. When night comes, you can wind down in a cozy B&B, a seafront cottage, a campground in the forest or a comfortable hotel. Wherever you go, you will find something to suit your needs and surpass your expectations.
Acadian Coastal Drive
The Acadian Coastal Drive is well-known for its warm sandy beaches and rock-strewn coast, which are home to various sea creatures such as the sea star. In this region, the sea star not only serves as a representation of the sea, but also as a symbol of the Acadian culture and their “joie de vivre”.
So whether you find them nestled along the coastline, or blowing free in the wind on the Acadian flags, you will definitely be seeing stars on the Acadian Coastal Drive.
