Charlo (Heron Bay)

Nestled on the shores of Chaleur Bay, One of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World, Charlo is one of the oldest settlements in Restigouche County. With its kilometres/miles of beaches, Charlo is the place to be for a seashore vacation. Build sandcastles, swim, windsurf, kite surf, canoe or try a variety of other aquatic activities. For those who love the beauty of natural green spaces, flowing rivers and lazy lagoons, try some superior birdwatching. Lace-up your hiking boots or bring your bike and explore Charlo’s hiking/biking trail. Campers will find spacious and fully serviced campsites. Bonfires on the beach under a starry sky is a favourite pastime here; so bring the marshmallows and enjoy! While here, stop for a visit at the Salmonid Enhancement Centre, a fish hatchery where you will find out how baby salmon are hatched and released into rivers for the preservation of the species. In winter Charlo is known for its cross-country ski club with groomed trails available for beginners and competitive skiers alike, and on the riverside, a fully equipped cottage can be rented for group events, or accommodation.
