We went to the beach for the day. It was a nice beach on Lake Saint-Jean. There is also lifeguards on high season. You can rent bikes, kayak, canoe and paddle board at the service center.

Great sunset views! The only issue was the guards where always watching you😳 a wee bit wired for my liking! Too restrictive No drones allowed. Solved problem and walked across the creek and was able to do some amazing kite surfing!
