Miscou Island Lighthouse

PROVINCIAL HERITAGE PLACE

Remote is the word to describe this heritage structure recognized by the Federal Heritage Buildings Review Office, which is now available to the public to explore and climb to the top of this light and take in the incredible sweeping view! A paved parking area (large enough for tour buses), a deck around the lighthouse, washroom facilities, in addition to a large grass area with picnic tables were all added in August 2009.

This structure was built in 1856 at the very tip of the northeastern part of the province, located on Chaleur Bay, a member of the "Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club." The original wooden, octagonal tower is still in use, equipped with a third-order Fresnel lens.

This lighthouse stands guard over the wild beauty of Miscou Island. Explore the windswept, sandy beaches while watching for birds and other forms of wildlife. This area is also known for its peat bogs - an important industry in this area.

Don't miss seeing the Miscou Island Lighthouse.
