Welcome to La Malbaie
Arriving from the south on Rte 362 or the west on Rte 138, the first village is Pointe-au-Pic. This was a holiday destination for the wealthy at the beginning of the 20th century, drawing the elite from as far away as New York. One of its famous residents was former US president William Howard Taft, who had a summer home built here.
Ste-Agnès lies to the northwest, away from the St Lawrence. Adjoining Pointe-au-Pic (and technically merged with it) is La Malbaie, which begins west of the Malbaie River and continues to the other side. North of La Malbaie is Rivière Malbaie, while St-Fidèle and the ridiculously cute Cap à l'Aigle are east on Rte 138.
