Park Experience

A Land Born of Water

A synonym for peace and relaxation, Pointe-Taillon is sure to charm you. This large and flat peninsula inspires tranquility. It is mainly composed of fine sand streaked with red minerals that were carried in from Rivière Péribonka between 7,000 and 5,000 years ago. Who’s never dreamed of relaxing on a long sandy beach and walking for miles without ever reaching the end? Admiring the sunset from a sea kayak? Swimming on a patrolled beach in the fresh and exceptionally warm water of Lac Saint-Jean? Camping on the lakeshore far from the sounds of the city and waking up gently to the sound of the waves? This is a recipe for an unforgettable vacation. Head out to discover the park of a thousand secrets!
