At the eastern end of the Bas-Saint-Laurent in the RCM of La Matanie, the town of Les Méchins is surrounded by a mountain range giving way to cliffs and beaches; a breathtaking scenery of maritime landscapes filled with the Gaspésie spirit. In-between Sainte-Anne-des-Monts and Matane, the town enjoys tranquility and wide-open spaces while providing all the required services needed in a vibrant community. At the entry of the Gaspésie, Les Méchins benefits from its great location to become an ideal geographical compromise, representing the best of both worlds, from the Haute-Gaspésie to La Matanie.
It is where the salty sea air meets the northeaster without ever having a cooling effect on its inhabitants’ fervour. Young families and the elderly choose Les Méchins for its healthy and friendly environment. It is a perfect place for sunset hunters, sports lovers and outdoorsy types alike.
Because of the proximity of the Parc de la Gaspésie and the Réserve faunique de Matane, it goes without saying that Les Méchins is a dream destination that anyone fond of snowmobile and ATV riding, hunting and fishing can’t be ignored.
There is no such thing as traffic in Les Méchins; just pure landscape gazing along Highway 132 bordered by the sea and the mountains forming a delight for the eyes. May this open window on our world convince you to drop anchor in our lovely region.
