The Beach

The beach at Belley Campground is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most beautiful in Quebec. Stretching more than 3 kilometers, this white sand beach can be compared to those of our southern neighbours. Lively during hot summer days, and also serene and beautiful as the sun sets over Lac-Saint-Jean.
