Gaspé Bay enjoys a special microclimate. The mountains that form the long range of the Forillon protect it from cold winds from the north, and it is not rare to record a temperature as much as 5 to 10 degrees Celsius warmer than on the north side of the peninsula.

Starting in June, the water warms and the summer arrives, to continue until late in September or October, when the hillsides are painted in ochre and crimson.
