Pointe-Fine Beach, parc régional du Lac Taureau

Taureau Lake is a huge reservoir of 95 square kilometers. Its 45 islands and its many sandy beaches make it an exceptional resort. The many bays and 31.7 km of shores that Lake Taureau offers provide the best conditions for swimming and boating. The Pointe-Fine beach is reminiscent of the great beaches of the south, so great!
