  • Very nice beach, well maintained. We can walk there for a long time without getting achaler by sellers. They offer their products without being too insistent. A lot of animation. We met there many Quebecers. (funny story) I greet a couple in french saying: another Quebec: the guy says no to me of Ontario in an impeccable french. There many laughs when I replied: one Ontarians who speak french Hat!
