Saint-Georges-de-Malbaie: South of this village, in Pointe-Saint-Pierre, you can admire a magnificent view of the tip of Forillon, on one side, and Bonaventure Island and Percé Rock, on the other. Near this point is Indian Head Rock. Legend has it that white men arrived from Europe on a tall ship, kidnapped a young Indigenous woman and took her back to their country far away. Since then, her heartbroken lover has awaited the return of his beloved with his back to the sea and his eyes gazing sorrowfully at the cliffs…
Coin-du-Banc: The marshes located between Barachois and Coin-du-Banc form the largest interior lagoon in Québec, a popular site for birdwatching. Portage River (locally known as Rivière aux Émeraudes, or “Emerald River”) is located in this area. This magnificent site is one of the trailheads of the Sentier des Rivières, a 27-km trail that runs through the forest to L’Anseà-Beaufils. You can also comb the beach at Coin-du-Banc for agates and jasper.
