The Village of Neguac is located on the north shore of the Miramichi Bay and is considered the Oyster Hub of Atlantic Canada. With exceptional natural attractions such as the magnificent dunes along its shores and the Miramichi Bay, visitors can enjoy a day at the beach or take in the Eco-tourism Park.
Richelieu Municipal Park, situated at the heart of the municipality, provides an excellent locale for a picnic. There is a gazebo that can be transformed into an outdoor stage. At the Neguac Wharf, services include water and electricity, and boat launches.
Ile-aux-foins Park is both an Eco-tourism site and a location for outdoor family activities. At the park, visitors will find a network of boardwalks with interpretation panels that explain the flora and fauna found on the island. The lighthouse site offers visitors a picnic area, gazebos and a playground for children. Change-rooms, toilets and parking lots can also be found at the park.
