Play in the water, put on a swimsuit and dip your toes or go all in and plunge!

Whether you’re a swimming champion or you just want to cool off for a few minutes, several options are available: the municipal pool, a variety of hotels, and campgrounds offer access to pools or water spots. Public beaches are also accessible. 

There is nothing like the beach to unwind!

The Baie-Comeau area has many water points. Options are almost unlimited, with the St. Lawrence River and the many rivers and lakes populating the area. 

Inquire about tide times and respect security notices before swimming in an unknown location. Most importantly, be aware that swimming is at your own risk if the location has no lifeguard services.
