Traverse Île d'entrée – Cap-aux-Meules
Entry Island, the only populated island not connected to the rest of the Magdalen Islands archipelago, is only accessible by boat. With its abundant greenery, hills and red cliffs, the island inspires tranquility. It’s a breath of fresh air, surrounded by the sea on all sides.
Entry Island is the ideal day-trip destination for those looking to get away from it all. At just seven square kilometres, it’s an easy place to explore on foot. You won’t want to miss the chance to climb Big Hill, the high point of the island at 174 metres, which offers spectacular panoramic views from its summit.
