Port-MenierAnticosti—an island, a world of its own! Quebec’s largest island, Anticosti stretches 222 km long in the Gulf of St. Lawrence across from Havre-Saint-Pierre.

The village of Port-Menier was named after Henri Menier, a French chocolate maker who came to live on Anticosti Island in the late 19th century. We also have him to thank for the population of 160,000 white-tailed deer, some 160 bird species, and a variety of sometimes rare and unique plants. Plus, the island’s limestone geology rich with fossils has given rise to some truly spectacular scenery.

Main visitor attractions:

  • Château-Menier site
  • The Maison des artisans (crafthouse)
  • Deer-watching right at the edge of town
  • Rivière à la Patate cavern, which was discovered in 1981 and contains 625 m of tunnels
  • Anticosti ecomuseum (history of the island and its ecosystems)
