Plage de la Dune du Sud
Just a short distance from Iles de la Madeleine Airport, Dune du Sud stretches for an almost unbelievable 22 kilometres (15 miles) along the eastern coast of the Magdalen Islands. A much-celebrated family beach during the summer months, it gets busy despite its size, with activities including bike paths, hiking and a variety of water sports.
Boat ramps provide an easy place to launch kayaks, while windsurfing and kite surfing are also popular because of the cross-shore winds. Free parking makes reaching Dune du Sud a simple one by road too.
Backed by rich red cliffs which reveal caves at low tide, facilities include public toilets and picnic tables.
