Make Grande-Anse your starting point for ocean excursions in Chaleur Bay. Fishing and boating are just a few of the activities that await you in this charming seaside town! This gateway to the Acadian Peninsula is home to a colourful Acadian lighthouse and boasts fabulous beaches.
Take your kayak to the beach and paddle along the shoreline -- a great number of bird species are sheltered in the area, so watch for a sighting while enjoying the peaceful sound of the waves as they sweep in to shore.
If a walk is what you are looking for, follow the shoreline of Grand-Anse’s beautiful beach, which is sheltered between wave-sculpted rock formations, and has change houses, washrooms, parking, food service, picnic area and a volleyball court if you are looking for some competitive fun. There is also a children's play area.
History buffs will want to dry off and head inland to the Popes Museum, a museum dedicated to the history of the papacy from year 1 A.D. to the present, and relates the role of the Roman Catholic Church in the development of Acadie. Marvel at the scale-model of St. Peters Basilica and learn about 2,000 years of papal history through exhibits, displays and art pieces.
You will enjoy a warm welcome in the coastal village of Grande-Anse.
