About Point St. Peter

Point St. Peter forms the easternmost point of the Gaspé Peninsula. Located halfway between the towns of Gaspé and Percé, Point St. Peter is comprised of meadows, forests, and 10-metre cliffs along the shorelines of the Gaspé coast. This distinctive ecosystem supports many different mammals and birds. Notably, large flocks of ducks can be found at Point St. Peter in the spring and fall, including Barrow’s goldeneye, which depends on undisturbed coastal zones and tree cavities for nesting.
