Champlain Beach

A beach accessible free to the public, 2 minutes from the city center!

Champlain Beach is accessible both from Avenue Champlain and Parc des Pioneers. You can enjoy the natural beauty of the landscape without leaving the city, and above all, without stepping on your toes. 

Children love to collect shells and algae, dig the sand all the way to China (shhh...we won't spoil their fun), study crayfish, climb on rocks, have sandcastle competitions or bathe their feet. in water. As they say here: Once sauced, it’s not so bad!

At low tide, it is possible to go to the famous “sandbank” immortalized by Manon Briand in her film La Turbulence des fluids.
