Technicolor Islands

Threaded together by elongated sand dunes, the Magdalen Islands enjoy sacred solitude in the north Atlantic Ocean―an archipelago of chromatic, ethereal allure.

A visit to Quebec's best-kept secret, the Magdalen Islands, is to ever after see the rest of the world as monochromatic. Here, colors delight the eye with such exuberance you'll forget the existence of pastels.

If you stop where the spirit moves you, you won't get far fast in the Magdalens. These Technicolor islands seduce the eye―as if to say, in a thousand vibrant shades, "Don't forget us when you go." That, of course, would be impossible.

We have assembled a few images of these brilliant islands into a slide-show feast for the eyes.
