St. Pierre & Miquelon is a self-governing French territory accessible by a 45 minute ferry from Newfoundland, CAN. [Note: it has a transatlantic airport too. -ED] You’ll find baguettes, French wine, music... culture. There are essentially two islands – Saint Pierre and Miquelon. St. Pierre is the smaller island but is the most populated and developed, with about 5500 residents. Miquelon is much bigger in size but has only 600 residents or so, making it far wilder. “Saint Pierre,” as one songwriter once put it, “is France far off and it is France forever.”
