    Fort-Prevel golf course

    by Jefie Updated Sep 27, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fort-Prevel was built during World War II to ward off German submarines that were a threat to supply ships on their way to Europe. Today, Fort-Prevel's 18 holes golf-course (par 73) is located on the remains of this old coastal battery and stretches over an area of 30 hectares overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

    Next to the golf-course, Auberge Fort-Prevel provides quality accomodations and fine regional cuisine, and there's a playground and swimming pool for children.

    Equipment: Bring your own golf equipment or rent it from the Auberge's golf boutique, where you can also rent golf carts or buy polo shirts, rain jackets, and so on.

    Haldimand Beach

    Haldimand Beach at dusk

    Beautiful sandy beach, one of the most popular in the Gaspe area! The water is pretty cool, but warm enough to go for a swim without freezing. On a hot day, it gets really crowded so if you're traveling with kids, make sure to keep an eye on them when they go out swimming (there are lifeguards on the beach, but accidents have happened). There's a stand that sells some refreshments, but it's always more fun to bring your own picnic - and don't forget the sunscreen!

    Equipment: Bring your bathing suit and your beach volleyball gear.

    A great spot for snowshoeing!

    Snowshoeing with my family in Gaspe

    The Gaspe Cegep's teaching forest (foret d'enseignement) is located just 10 minutes west of Gaspe on route 198 and is open to all free of charge. With its numerous trails, picnic tables and shelter, it's a great place for hiking and picnicking in summer, and a great place for snowshoeing in winter. There even is a small obstacle course for kids, and the best part about it is that not too many people know that it is open to everyone so chances are you won't meet too many people along the way which makes for a quiet and relaxing walk.

    Equipment: No rentals so you need to bring your snowshoes. Bring wood if you want to make fire in the shelter.
