Pointe-aux-Loups is like an oasis amid the sand dunes. It is on the smallest of the inhabited islands and it is home for a tiny community of some 50 houses. On the north side of the island, there's a small pier where fishermen's boats can rest on a wooden slip until it's time to go out to sea again.
Pointe-aux-Loups is a little township of 50 houses located on the tiniest inhabited island, Pointe aux Loups Island.
All along Route 199, to the east and west of Pointe-aux-Loups, two long beaches washed by crystal clear waves stretch from Fatima to Grosse-Île. The beach on the west side is Dune du Nord Beach (north dune) and the one on the east of the Island is Pointe-aux-Loups Beach. These are two of the most beautiful and popular beaches on the Islands. However, these beaches are also the most dangerous on the Islands, particularly when tides are high at the full moon or when winds are strong.
