Our beaches

Forillon National Park

Forillon National Park has several beaches that will enchant visitors! Whether you are seeking tranquillity, observing wildlife, plant life and landscapes, or even playing in the sand and engaging in various activities, having fun is no problem on our beautiful beaches. However, please note that none of these beaches are monitored, and caution must be exercised, especially with regard to boating safety. Enjoy your visit!


Penouille Beach is without a doubt one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Quebec. Also, since it is located in Gaspé Bay, the water is warm enough for swimming.

The Cap des Rosiers cobble beach offers a stunning view of the St. Lawrence, the Cap des Rosiers lighthouse and the cliffs of Cap Bon Ami.

A beautiful boardwalk built in 2018 is nearby and leads to the Irish Memorial, erected in memory of the shipwrecked passengers of Ireland's Carricks ship, which ran aground at Cap des Rosiers in 1847.


Cap Bon Ami is a must for Forillon visitors. You can take in a picturesque landscape from its cobble beach. Birding enthusiasts will also be delighted by the presence of the various marine birds that live in or visit Forillon.


The Petit-Gaspé cobble beach is located in the southern sector of Forillon National Park and offers a view of Gaspé Bay. It is the perfect place for a picnic after climbing Mont Saint Alban.
