This circuit takes you along the Chaleur Bay. Because of its tremendous beauty and its exceptional quality, the Chaleur Bay is part of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club. Protected from the wind, the bay offers a microclimate resulting in warm waters. Now is the time to give a rest to your motorcycle and to go for a swim and relax on the long beaches. Going through curves, you will notice the superb red cliffs with their abundant vegetation.
In Pointe-à-la-Croix, you can contemplate the Appalachian Mountains at the mouth of the Chaleur Bay from a 210-metre high lookout or take a stroll on the boardwalk along the magnificent salmonriver, the Restigouche. You must visit The Battle of the Restigouche National Historic Site of Canada which commemorates the last naval battle between France and England for the possession of the New France in 1760.
In Pointe-à-la-Garde, enjoy the very nice beach in the heart of the village, and in Escuminac you can see the province of New Brunswick on the other shore and enjoy a roadside rest area that offers a lookout.
As you exit the village, turn right on the Pointe-de-Miguasha road that leads to the Parc national de Miguasha. This park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, preserves a fossil rich cliff with a worlwidereputation since its discovery in the 1800s. Picnic areas, hiking trails, restaurant and shop.
Back on Route 132, particularly winding at this point, you will come across the Nouvelle village and the Carleton-sur-Mer seaside resort with its beaches, its grandiose sea and mountain sceneries as well as the mild climate of the bay.
