Discover one of the most beautiful bays in the world

The Baie des Chaleurs is now a member of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club!

Long beaches, remarkable red cliffs, lush vegetation… Take in the incredible view all the way along Route 132. Head to Mont Saint-Joseph, in Carleton, it has an incredible view of the Baie des Chaleurs. Discover our region’s hidden treasures, such as Colborne Park’s cliffs in Port-Daniel-Gascons, or the mysterious Anse à la Barbe, a small, hidden-away, prime fishing spot. There’s so much to do in this picturesque part of the peninsula, you can’t possibly see it all in a few days, so why not plan a full week in the Baie des Chaleurs?

Day 1

Parc National de Miguasha

Visit the Parc National de Miguasha, just an hour and a half’s drive from Bonaventure; it’s a park and a museum! The Parc National de Miguasha protects and showcases a site where you can find an abundance of fossilized fish and plants; it’s also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There’s a scientific exposition in the museum that takes museumgoers on a trip back 380 million years in time!

Day 4

Spend the day in Percé

We suggest you spend one day in Percé, which is just 136 km from Bonaventure. Percé is home to our region’s icon: Percé Rock. You can head out on a cruise around the Parc National de l’Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé, but if you don’t fancy spending the day at sea, why not walk around Percé village and peruse its gift shops and boutiques? On the way back to Bonaventure, stop off at L’Anse-à-Beaufils: a little fishing paradise!
