Motorcycling in Gaspésie – Bay Beaches

| 1 day |180 km | from Matapédia to Port-Daniel

Adapted from the brochure The Motorcycle Tourist Circuits of Gaspésie

Protected from the wind, Chaleur Bay benefits from a microclimate that warms its waters. The region also offers panoramic views and numerous rest areas.

Stop in Pointe-à-la-Croix to admire the stunning view of the Appalachian Mountains from the top of a 210-metre (700-foot) lookout. The stretch of road to Carleton-sur-Mer offers several panoramic views of New Brunswick.

The seaside resort of Carleton-sur-Mer will charm you with its beaches and stunning sea and mountain scenery. The mild climate of the Chaleur Bay region extends to New Richmond and Bonaventure, both of which offer many opportunities to enjoy aquatic activities in the bay and nearby rivers. Further east, the painted fire hydrants in New Carlisle are sure to make you smile.

Following the coast from Paspébiac to Port-Daniel, you will come across many rest areas and beaches where you can relax, while the undulating and winding road to Gascons makes for a fun ride!
