Along the Acadian coast, you will discover the sea with its golden sandy beaches that you never want to leave and those of pebbles fit for discovery. You will see places rich in culture and history, enjoy marine delicacies and discover the Acadian culture. From villages to communities, museums, theater workshops, festivals and unique attractions reveal the essence of the Acadian spirit.
The Acadian Peninsula
You are invited to discover a corner of land surrounded by water where the joy of life and the hospitality of the locals meet on all roads! The Acadian Peninsula extends into the sea with, on one side, Baie-des-Chaleurs (which is part of the club of the most beautiful bays in the world) and on the other, the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It is therefore the ideal place to taste fresh seafood, explore the multiple beaches and do a wide variety of nautical activities.
The cities of Tracadie-Sheila, Caraquet, Shippagan and Lamèque and their surroundings open their doors to you to take advantage of a multitude of events, throughout the year. While summer is the ideal season for festivals, shows and other attractions, winter also holds its share of surprises in a magnificent all-white setting. Winter recreation enthusiasts can enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sliding, or just hot chocolate by the fireplace.
And do not forget that the keys to a good trip are a good table and a good roof! The Acadian Peninsula offers you a wide choice of restaurants that allow you to try regional dishes or excellent seafood. After dark, you can retreat to a cozy guest room, a seaside chalet, camping in the countryside or a comfortable hotel. Everywhere, you will find something that fulfills your desires and exceeds your expectations.
Acadian Coastal Route
The Acadian Coastal Route is well known for its sandy beaches where the water is warm and for its rocky coast where various marine species live. One of them, the starfish, represents not only the sea, but also Acadian culture and joie de vivre. It is therefore under the sign of the stars that you will discover the Acadian Coastal Route, whether they nestle in the sand on the coast or fly on the Acadian flags.
