Miquelon is an island and village in Saint-Pierre and Miquelon.

Understand[edit]

Although it is much larger than Saint-Pierre, it is much less populated. The residents are primarily of Basque and Acadian heritage.

Geologically, Miquelon is three islands, connected by isthmuses formed from drifting sand:

  • Le Cap at the north, location of the village of Miquelon (pop. 600).
  • Miquelon proper (Grande Miquelon). The name comes from the Basque version of Michael, which was the name of several fishermen who settled here.
  • Langlade (Petite Miquelon), which has no permanent inhabitants but is a popular vacation spot. The name is a corruption of the French l'île à l'Anglais or Englishman's Island.
