The only remaining village on the island, Port-Menier was founded in 1899 by the French industrialist Henri Menier, when he realized that the location made it a better port than the nearby Baie-Sainte-Claire. A handful of homes from this period still remain on the former main street, facing Ellis Bay. Don’t leave without going on the heritage tour, that will take you to 13 different sites in the village and the surrounding area, including Baie-Sainte-Claire, Pointe-Ouest and Anse-aux-Fraises; a panel in the tourist information office shows a map of the tour, with the location of each site.
