Top 3 Instagram Photos of Cultural Discoveries in Our Regions

A visit to the maritime regions of Québec is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a rich maritime culture and discover our fascinating heritage. These three photos shared by our online community on Instagram are only a glimpse of what awaits you in our regions…


It’s nearly impossible to visit the maritime regions of Québec without seeing at least one lighthouse, since there are over 40 of them dotting our coastlines. Many are open to the public, such as the Pointe-au-Père Lighthouse pictured above. You can even spend the night in some of them!

Regional Flavours

Eating lobster while you’re in our regions is obviously a must! Lobster can be prepared in many ways, including in a roll, salad or poutine… but the traditional way is to boil it whole and then savour it with garlic butter or lemon butter. Yum!


Eastern Québec is home to an impressive number of museums and interpretation sites. You can visit exhibits and historic buildings, meet enthusiastic interpreter guides and enjoy all kinds of fascinating discoveries, including a virtual-reality experience of the La Gaspésienne no. 20 fishing boat at the Musée de la Gaspésie.

We’d love to know more about your cultural discoveries in our regions: share your photos with us on Instagram and tag them with the hashtags #quebecbythesea and #quebecmaritime!

Her favourite subjects are people, local culture and our regions’ unexpected (and sometimes unusual) treasures. Although she loves relaxing with a coffee and a good book, she also enjoys exploring new vistas and swimming with the salmon in the Matapédia River!
