Sept-Îles' Sandy Beaches

Located only minutes from the town center are kilometers of meters-wide sandy beaches that are sure to make the envy of the pickiest sea travelers.

Whether it be for relaxing on warm and comfy sand while enjoying spectacular views onto the archipelago or joining in the locals in the many activities it offers, Sept-Îles’ beaches have something for all.

Surfing, bathing, walking, horse riding, sandcastle building, yoga, beach volleyball, kite surfing, sea kayaking are among the many, yet not restricted, activities locals enjoy during the snow-free months.

Be at the center of the local lifestyle, enjoy one of the city’s scenic and colourful sunsets whilst daydreaming at the calming sound of waves hitting ashore in the backdrop or simply stroll around barefoot in soft gentle-feeling sand and take time to discover the wide variety of seashells washed ashore at low-tide.
