The secrets of an unforgettable day at the beach

Did you know that Lake Saint-Jean has another name? Yes, it’s also called Piekouagami. This means ‘shallow’ according to the nation of the Porcupines who lived on its shores hundreds of years ago.

And if you’re looking to admire the most beautiful landscapes of this lake, head to the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean Music Camp, the rest area in Métabetchouan-Lac-à-la-Croix, or even the Desbiens Trading Post.

Finally, if there’s one thing to remember about the beaches of Lake Saint-Jean, it’s that they offer the most beautiful spots to watch the sunsets. You’ll witness a spectacle of the lake water dancing under the fiery colors of the sky while the sun tints the panorama like nowhere else. And if you really want to enjoy it, visit our beaches during the summer solstice!
