Village of Cap-Pelé

Founded in 1780 and incorporated in 1969, the Village of Cap-Pelé is a nice little village located in South-East New-Brunswick.

Cap-Pelé is also called "Coeur de l'Acadie" which means the heart of Acadia.


The Aboiteau Beach and other nearby beaches are some of the finest beaches in Canada. You can easily walk a few kilometers along these interconnected beaches or take a swim in the warm waters.

The fishing industry plays a big role in the village's economy. As you drive along the coast you can smell the smoked hareng from the smoke houses. The following picture was taken during the spring 2006 hareng fishing season. The fish was caught just near the Aboiteau Beach. The machine usually used for transfering the fish was broken so the fisherman had to empty the boat by hand.
