In addition to the large fleet of lobster fishing boats ported in Main-à-Dieu, the community has a number of local points of interest that you may want to see while visiting the area.

Coastal Discovery Centre

The Coastal Discovery Centre is open year-round, and offers many different services for everyone to enjoy! From the Big Wave Cafe, Library, Visitor Information Centre,  Fishermans Museum, and C@P Site, to our weekly exercise programs, bingo, cards and crafts.
