Did you know that the beaches and the sea around Sept-Îles are
just as great for surfing and kitesurfing as the world-renowned
destinations of California or Hawaii? What’s more, it’s a place
where you can go snowkiting in the winter! These sports
are growing in popularity and attracting tourists from around the
world. The incredible waves and sandy bottom of the sea make it a
safe option for beginners as well as seasoned surfers. Take a
breath of sea-salted air and get ready to tackle the sea – you
might even impress the locals!
Campers, you’re sure to love the campgrounds in Sept-Îles. Behind
the tourism office, there are 18 campsites overlooking the bay
that accommodate recreational vehicles. Campers can head to the
beach to practise water sports. Adventurous travellers will love
rustic camping on Grande Basque Island. The island is only
accessible by boat and has 18 campsites; campers can rent
equipment or enjoy the fully equipped tent.
