Located on the western tip of Havre Aubert Island (also called Amherst Island), l'Étang-des-Caps is serene and panoramic, known for its breathtaking views of the setting sun. Here you'll find a charming mix of ancestral homes and new architectural gems, perched on red sand cliffs overlooking the ocean. Off the coast, in the distance, the Corps-Mort (dead man) is a rocky, uninhabited island, always surrounded by fishing boats during lobster season.
