Flights from St. Pierre and Miquelon
St. Pierre and Miquelon is a self-governing territorial overseas collectivity of France, found in the north-western Atlantic Ocean and near Canada. It is the only remaining memorabilia of the former colonial empire of New France that remains under French control, with a population of 6,080 during the 2011 census. The islands are situated at the entrance of Fortune Bay, which extends into the southern coast of Newfoundland near the Grand Banks, while its nearest point to Metropolitan France stands at 3,819 kilometres (from Brest).
Where to go
Sometimes called a little piece of France, St. Pierre and Miquelon is a mix of North America and the mentioned European country, both by nature and by culture. Locals love the berets, the baguettes, and Bordeaux, as they love almost everything American. Saint-Pierre, the half of the duo, is the more populated and developed island, with most residents living in the town. Miquelon, the other, is larger geographically but is scarcely populated, with only 600 residents over all.
The colourful history of the islands which it owes to the French is still prevalent today, seen in the canary yellow, lime green, and lavender houses that are dainty and pretty at the same time. Locals air kiss their hellos and goodbyes, and pays in Euros, while pastry shops sell cream puffs and various dry breads that are typically Parisian.
