This is a good area to meander around. Probably the most concentrated and interesting artisan area on the Islands. We also took in the museum which gives a good history of the area and a great cafe, Café la Grave. Walk out to the point and see the trébuchets.
La Grave is our favourite place to spend time when we are on the Magdalen Islands. There are many lovely shops, galleries, restaurants, and cafés in the restored fish/boat houses that line the one street. For kids, check out the aquarium, the playground at the end of the street, and the museum (Musée de la Mer) up the hill. Also,... 更多
Well-preserved fishing village reconverted to artisan village. Nice diversity of shops (from soap to comic strip to sand scultures). Easy to spend an afternoon browsing. Little beach to collect sea shells and nice 15-minute walk to Jacques Cartier cross on hilltop nearby.

Occasionally on the ile, there can be days that are not so great for the beach, but fear not, there is La Grave. Shops, cafes, and other trinkets for sale to keep you busy until the clouds and rain move on and it is time to get back outside.
There is a lot to see and learn in this 1800 Acadian historical settlement and culture. There are restaurants, shops, galleries, museum, artifacts .... local and national artists (musicians, singers) shows in summer. A must to see for an unforgettable experience on the Island!!!
This street offers many things within walking distance. The street is lined with gift shops, restaurants, chocolate stores, art, and museums. You can easily spent a whole afternoon browsing, eating and shopping or spending time reading on the pebble beach at one of the many picnic tables or on the grassy bluff. If walking on the bluff, head to the... 更多
Keeping all of the souvenir shops together is not a bad idea, although I am sure that islanders who live elsewhere might disagree. This "development" is cute, offers a good variety and is kept away from the mainstream of island life. This does have the advantage of being closed in the winter, and not having a large number of boarded-up... 更多
Nice compact little area to park and stroll around for a couple hours shopping local artisan shops, boutiques, getting photos, or grabbing a bite to eat. It's pretty busy here and touristy but well worth a visit.
