    Summer Villas at Metis Beach

    by Jefie Updated Jul 22, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Founded in 1818, Metis Beach quickly became a popular vacations spot for wealthy Scottish and English businessmen.

    A little East of Grand-Metis (where the Reford Gardens are located), on your way to Matane, the road goes up, down and around a little bay and on your left you will see Beach Road, just off Route 132.

    If you drive slowly on Beach Road, you will be able to see some of the beautiful 19th century summer villas built by Metis Beach's prestigious visitors. It's worth the short detour!

    Take the Ferry

    by Simonneeddy Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can cross the St. lawrence river by Ferry Boat ( cars and people) from Baie Comeau on the north shore to Matane on the South shore as we did. On a previous trip we crossed here at night and the water was rough. We got caught in the fog and had to idle until it cleared to contiue. We arrived quite late. It was a very comfortable ride with restaurant etc.on board but it was long because of the delay.

    View of the St. Lawrence River from our Motel,which we took as soon as we disembarked from the Ferry. It was the first one and we were tired so not difficult to please.
