De l'Ouest (West) Beach - West Dune

De l'Ouest (West) Beach - West Dune

The West beach is in the West Dune sector, near Étang-des-Caps (Île du Havre-Aubert).
The West Dune links l'Île du Havre-Aubert and Île du Cap-aux-Meules (at Étang-du-Nord).
Head North (to your right) from the parking lot and enjoy bathing fun in the warm currents of the Goulet. There, the ebb tide takes the shallow waters of Baie du Havre aux Basques back to the sea. The walking distance to the Goulet is just over 3 km.
The West beach is ideal for long walks.
A great place to watch spectacular sunsets!

Length: 3.8 km
