The Magdalen Islands are a small archipelago in the Gulf of St. Lawrence between Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. There are 9 main islands and several islets. The islands were discovered by Jacque Cartier in 1534. It used to belong to the Colony of Newfoundland, in about 1763-1774, but now belongs to Quebec. From what I've read, it is a magnificent place to visit, with sandstone cliffs and white sand beaches.
I was wondering if any of you have been there? I am curious as to what it is like. I have been to both PEI and Newfoundland, but have never heard of this place.

Maybe it's because there's not many people there (less than 13'000). Never been there, but I know many Quebecers go there for their vacation in the summer ; people say it's windy, but the beaches are wonderful.
