Discover the sandy beaches bordering the magnificent Lac Saint-Jean

Lac Saint-Jean - Pekuakami in Ilnu, which means shallow water, is fed by large natural and wild rivers. 210 kilometers of shoreline and 42 kilometers of beaches around an inland sea, fill up on energy and sunshine has never been so heavenly. The most annoying thing will be to choose from the fifteen fine sandy beaches that line a huge part of the shores of the largest inhabited lake in Quebec. Lac Saint-Jean has what it takes to satisfy all desires, whether you're solo, a romantic duo or traveling as a family.

With waters approaching 80 degrees Fahrenheit in summer, we only want to jump in the wave! Little advice, do not forget the sunscreen!
