What once was an island where families lived in the previous century, is now connected to the main island by a sandy beach.

A hike up the hill will lead to expansive views of Notre Dame Bay.

The last part up to the top is steep and there may be some loose gravel. Wear hiking boots and take water. Leave a bit of extra time for exploring the beach!
