Here, time has stopped. Not a sound, except the song of the sea and the birds: you are in another world! Its inhabitants, commonly called the Red Feet, left the island in the early 60s.
Did you know that?
Formerly called Île aux Chiens, this small island is a witness to the history of fishing in Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon.
Fun & summer visit
Today, Ile aux Marins comes alive in summer. During the summer, it opens the doors of its former school now converted into a museum and its church. A tour filled with anecdotes and history allows visitors to understand the living conditions of the residents in the past. Guided tours are even offered.
Discover Île aux Marins with the ship “P’tit Gravier”. On the spot, take a walking tour in all the nooks and crannies of the island, once known for its community of fishermen and pioneers.
From the wharf to the cemetery, passing by the gravel pits, the church or the school, you will find traces of an intense activity under often harsh conditions… Take the opportunity to stop by the Jézéquel house and have a meal in this friendly and warm place.
