Caraquet

The history of Caraquet is closely intertwined with the sea, as is the history of New Brunswick’s Acadia, of which it proudly calls itself the capital. After the arrival of the first inhabitants from Europe in 1730, Caraquet really began to develop in 1758 when 34 Acadian families—fleeing the Deportation of 1755—led by Alexis Landry settled in the Sainte-Anne-du-Bocage area.

You will be charmed by the beauties of the sea and its fresh products, the city's new infrastructures, its cultural animation and its pride for the French language.

By highlighting nature's charms with the bike path by the sea, beaches or terraces with a magnificent view, by preserving an heritage faithful to its history, by having chefs who will make you taste authentic experiences, by offering coffee shops and small cozy boutiques, by encouraging artists who transmit Acadian culture, and by creating accommodations that will satisfy you, Caraquet really has it all.

It is by discovering the inclusive, diverse and colorful essence of this city that you will come back again and again.

Come explore this maritime city by walking on the lookout of the Carrefour de la mer to discover beautiful sunsets. Since 2018, new areas have been equipped with tables or loungers to contemplate the landscape. Walk along these quiet streets where you can experience the Acadian legendary welcome. Take time to wander along the riverbank, visit our museum, see a musical show or a play.

No one can come to see us without visiting the authentic Village historique acadien located in Bertrand, a living museum with bilingual interpreters who will make you live in one day 200 years of Acadian history. The Village has restaurants and souvenir shops with a range of local products and crafts, in addition to all the period houses and its hotel of yesteryear.
