Step Back in Time

Ile aux Marins is a charming island facing Saint-Pierre. Only ten minutes by passenger ferry, this beautiful island serves as a unique testimony of the fishermen’s past. In the 1960’s the last permanent residents left, but heritage groups have given life back to the island with help from the French and local governments. Take a walking tour of Ile aux Marins (“The Island of the Sailors”) – it is a ghost town experience not to be missed.
