Carleton-sur-Mer has long been known as a resort. By the mid 19th century, the village was already a popular vacation spot for city dwellers. Over the years, the trend has gained ground, and today, Carleton-sur-Mer is one of the region’s foremost tourist destinations.
A gourmet paradise
Eating well is a tradition here. French, Italian, Japanese and Moroccan cuisine all have pride of place, and of course, there’s all that delicious fish and seafood. In Carleton-sur-Mer, fine food aficionados have so much choice.
Make your way to the 555-metre high summit, on foot or by car, to admire a breathtaking panorama of sea and mountains. You can visit the Oratoire Notre-Dame, a Brittany chapel built in 1935, famous for its mosaics and stained glass windows.
Interconnected and safely laid out trails featuring numerous bridges, stairs and look-outs will take you to the summits of the Mont Saint-Joseph (555 metres) and Mont Carleton (613 metres) massifs. Enjoy them on foot or on your bike.
Quai des arts
If you’re looking for theatre, music performances, art shows or a library, this splendid cultural centre houses all of these under a single roof.
One kilometre in length, with benches here and there along the way, this new boardwalk runs along the municipal beach and connects it to Rue du Quai. Stroll down by the sea, admire the view with your sweetheart, family, friends or even all on your own.
Located at the tip of the sandspit beyond the campground, this is an ideal place from which to admire the sunset, visit the lighthouse or listen to a nature talk or a tale told by a storyteller.
Advantageously situated on a point stretching out into the bay, our campground offers you an extraordinary vista encompassing mountains and the bay. You can book your stay on line at any time of the year.
A 6-km network of cycling trails borders the Carleton salt marsh from Pointe Tracadigash at the western edge of the campground to Route du Quai.
Is there anything better to add to the pleasure of your vacation than a round of golf? The 18-hole golf course offers the added bonus of a stunning view overlooking the sea and the mountain.
