The Îles de la Madeleine, along with Bas Saint-Laurent, Gaspésie and the Côte Nord, from a large region known as Maritime Québec. It is a vast territory, bordered by three thousand kilometres of shoreline; in some places, sandy beaches that stretch on forever, in other places, small, rocky bays on impressive cliffs. The sea has shaped the lives of the people of Maritime Québec and their traditions. This influence can be seen in the lighthouses that dot the coast, in the colourful houses, the ge-togethers down by the wharf, and above all, through the songs of the people and their love of life. Welcoming and generous, the people of Maritime Québec are eager to share with you their culture and their "joie de vivre".
