Cap-aux-Meules, Canada Cruises

The charming port of Cap-aux-Meules is the foremost town in the Magdalen Islands, off the coast of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in Canada. This quiet fishing town is home to beautiful grassy countryside and sweeping sandstone coastland, with an abundance of shops, eateries and small fishing boats in the harbour that combine to create a wonderfully picturesque destination.

Sightseeing in Cap-aux-Meules

Cruise excursions may give you the chance to see the natural beauty of this island for yourself, as well as some of the structures that hark back to Cap-aux-Meules' storied past. The island is a fantastic place for scenic walks, and makes the perfect destination for a quieter, more laid-back excursion off the beaten track.

Buck Park

A walk around the stunning surrounds of Buck Park will bring you up-close with some of the island's bird species and a wealth of plant life, making this a perfect place to take some time out for a relaxing walk. Follow the country trails down to Lake Quinn, and will bring you out at some great vantage points to see Cap-aux-Meules, as well as offering vistas of the other islands in the archipelago.

Eglise St Pierre

The striking white Church of St Peter makes for a beautiful sightseeing location, sitting in stark contrast to the green hills around. Its interior is just as elegant, with high vaulted ceilings of white and gold trim overlooking the rows of darker pews that lead up to the altar. The Eglise St Pierre is the second largest wooden church in North America, after the Eglise Sainte-Marie in nearby Nova Scotia – and features timbers from shipwrecks in ages past, which were blessed before their use in the church's construction.

L'Étang-du-Nord lighthouse

Head towards the pretty white lighthouse of L'Étang-du-Nord on the western headland of the island for some incredible views of the coast – particularly around sunset, when the wispy clouds turn pink and orange as the sunlight fades. Be sure to stop around the beautiful Site de la Cote area too, singled out by the locals as a place of natural beauty, and marked by a distinctive sculpture called ‘Les Pecheurs'.

Shopping in Cap-aux-Meules

You may like to stick around the Site de la Cote if you'd like to do some shopping during your time on the island, as there are a few souvenir shops to be found around this scenic area. Alternatively, you can find a great selection of locally produced cheeses, as well as bread and pastries, and delicious premium coffee using beans that are dried in the salty sea air.

Eating Out in Cap-aux-Meules

Most places to eat in Cap-aux-Meules serve delicious local fare, and there are a number of charming bakeries and smaller food shops that will also happily prepare some of their wares for you to eat at a table. Why not dine in a bistro overlooking the sea, or head to a restaurant where you can enjoy a lavish dessert, washed down with a good glass of wine or home-brewed beer?
