"The beautifull island!" Île aux Coudres by Deus_ultima

Île aux Coudres Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 68 photos

When nature preserves it's beauty.

"Comming to get a bit of fresh air?" said the old man on the porch as we passed him on our rented bikes. Even if we are led to believe that "progress" and homogenisation (or americanisation?) has polluted the whole world, there are places like this little island that, even with tons of tourists comming everyday with the ferry, keep their pride and identity. When you ride (don't tell me you would drive??) around the island, you can see houses and monuments that have well passed the test of time. A beautifull light house, the crosses and chapels all over the island, serving as sanctuaries for the sailors of days past. The air filled with the smell of salted water while you see little fisherman boats ringing in the catch. Everything of his island is magic and I really do recommend seing it..even more than Orleans Island!
