This is a must see. Strolling thru the street, visiting the boutiques in a very relaxed atmosphere. The artists like to share stories and experiences with you. Well worth the drive.

Expect to spend a couple hours going through the shops. Expensive clothing but souvenirs are very creative and reasonable. Lots of local stuff an little from off shore.

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...More
