One of the few remaining great sand dunes on the northeastern coastline of North America. The sand dune stretches 12 km (7.5 mi.) across Bouctouche Bay as a result of the constant action of wind, tides and sea currents since the last ice age. This environmentally significant area is the habitat for a rich variety of marine and aquatic plants and animals, shorebirds and migratory birds.
A network of land and water trails connects all major sites of interest in the area. Designed to minimize the effects of visitors on the environment and to provide easy access to the various sites, visitors can walk, bike, ski, canoe or kayak these trails.
A great way to spend a day with the family exploring and experiencing the rich and diverse local environment.
