Tourism and resort life

Explore four attractions that have emerged over time, kindled by Carleton-sur-Mer’s long tradition of hospitality: Gaspésie’s first golf club; the old Hôtel Carleton building, a vestige of the hotel infrastructure that existed here in the early 20th century; the beach; and the marina.

Tucked as it is between sea and mountain, Carleton-sur-Mer has long been a favourite spot in Québec for tourists and resort lovers.

The municipal beach gained another attraction with the addition of a Citizen’s Park in 2018. Hiking and cycling trails have been laid out on Mont Saint-Joseph, a natural feature perfect for outdoor activities.
