Caraquet, who received the Cultural Capital of Canada Award twice, is a city of a thousand and one colors, full of flavor, history, and pride. On one side is the Gulf of St. Lawrence and on the other, one of the most beautiful bays in the world, the Baie des Chaleurs. Nearby is the Bay of Caraquet where many boat lovers like to anchor because it is protected from strong winds by the Island of Caraquet.
