The delightful village of Kegaska, which is built on the shore between two bays and on an island connected by bridge to the mainland, is known for its white sand and hiking trails covered with crushed shells. Its name comes from the Montagnais-Innu word quegasca, meaning “shortcut” or “easy route.”

Although the community was once based on cod fishing, the village’s economy is now focused on commercial crab, lobster, and scallop fishing.

The village of Kegaska has been accessible by automobile since 2013 via highway 138.
