Petite île au Marteau

Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve

Sailors owe one to this island. In truth, the lighthouse on Petite île au Marteau has prevented many shipwreck since 1915. A hiking trail leads to the lighthouse. You may stop en route at the lookout for a panoramic view over the cliffs of Grosse île au Marteau.

Trail map and regulations

While hiking, remain on established trails or on the shoreline where there is no vegetation.

Falling rocks are a hazard near the cliffs. When possible, keep a safe distance, avoid walking beneath overhanging rock and do not stop next to the cliffs.

At low tide, water and seaweed on the rocks create slippery conditions. Please proceed with caution.
