An exotic maritime destination 
Dunes as far as the eye can see await you in the Îles-de-la-Madeleine. Lagoons, capes, green valleys, red cliffs and brightly painted houses are what make this archipelago, comprised of a dozen islands in the heart of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, so scenic. It is a treat to explore the Îles-de-la-Madeleine on bicycle, horseback or foot. However, why not tour the coast in a canoe, zodiac or kayak? The strong winds, shallow bays and spectacular coastline are a windsurfer's dream come true. As for the long, practically deserted sandy beaches, they are perfect for relaxing and swimming!
When visiting Îles-de-la-Madeleine if you speak even just a little bit of French everyone will be a lot more friendly and go out of their way to help you out more than they would if you spoke strictly English and no French at all.
One of the best things about Îles-de-la-Madeleine is the fact that it is known as one of, if not the best places for wind sports (like windsurfing and kiteboarding). So if your not the one riding it is always fun to be the one watching.
All of Îles-de-la-Madeleine is pretty safe.
