    L’Île aux Marins

    This little island is just a 10-minute boat ride from Saint-Pierre and was once home to a community of over 600 fishermen and pioneers. While it’s now mainly populated by cabins and summer homes, the community’s remains have been immaculately preserved as interactive heritage exhibits. Take in the history of the region by visiting the island’s museum, Archipélitude, or roam freely in and out of the buildings for a hands-on experience!
