Experience the gift of the glaciers and our pretty sand dunes. Thousands of years ago as glaciers melted then split and erected the many valleys, hollows, ravens and the Jacquet River Gorge which now combined create the geology of Belledune. Strolling our beaches the ancient cliffs and rocks can be traced back over 400 million years ago, long before man or dinasaurs. This was the time when complicated creatures like spunges and coral were beginning to populate the oceans.
Belledune is located on the border of the Restigouche and Gloucester counties in northern New Brunswick, it therefore draws on both of these jurisdictions for its labour force and support services.
Nestled between the forest and the Bay of Chaleur this rural community provides the perfect setting for relaxation.
