Located in the North Atlantic Ocean, Saint Pierre Island archipelago is home to over 6,000 people. Its history from when the New French colonized the island to the present ruling of the French government Saint Pierre and Miquelon (a small island also a part of the archipelago) is vast and virtually unchanged in its colorful life style.
The 120 km coastline looks out to other islands of both Canadian and previous New French control, allowing for stunning views of the fearsome waters. Other previous dependencies owned by New France and a lighthouse 10 km from St. Pierre add to the spectacle that is Saint-Pierre and Miquelon.
In addition to the main island of Saint-Pierre, Miquelon adds a stark and rocky backdrop to the wonders of the sea. The area around the two islands, owned by multiple nations and prior civilizations has and will continue to be a rock and beautiful eye sore in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean.
