Your tour begins at Le Barbocheux, an artisanal winery whose products include ‘bagosse’. The Madelinots refer to bagosse as ‘the beer of the islands’, but it is really a traditional home-brewed wine. During your visit of the winery, enjoy a tasting of fortified wine (Porto style).

Continue to Cap Alright Lighthouse for a photo stop of the spectacular view over grey cliffs, all of Plaisance Bay and the distant outline of Entry Island. Admire the exterior of the lighthouse, the last one built on the islands, which has changed little since its construction in 1928. 

Your scenic drive continues along Chemin Pointe Basse, a road peppered with many examples of traditional local architecture. Look out for the simple houses and barns all painted in bright colours, and with architecture reflective of the Acadian and French origins of many of the islanders, as well as some New England influences.
