The Anse-a-Beaufils hamlet is situated in the Gaspesie Region, a few kilometres from Gaspe City.

It’s a charming fishing haven that overlooks the St. Lawrence River. L'Anse-a-Beaufils has a small fishing harbour on the shores of Anse-a-Beaufils Bay. North of the harbour you can see a historical building: the store of the Robin Company dating back to 1928.

The hamlet offers interesting outdoor activities for tourists that will make your day unforgettable. Guest can access some trails along which run beautiful rivers and where you vacationers encounter bridges, staircases, picnic tables and even a cable car. From the viewpoint, tourists will have the chance to breathe in the sea breeze from the River and appreciate the sunsets or the sunrises.

Water sport lover can take advantage of the marina and rent a boat for a night or for a few days. According to a legend, the name of the village was inspired by a young French noble called Bonfils who supposedly lived in the area in the second half of the XVII Century. It seems a lot of mystery surrounds his birth and that he resembled King Louis XIV.

Some say he was the king's twin brother, the famous Iron Mask.
