The territory consists of two inhabited islands, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, as well as several smaller islands and rocks. With a population of less than 6,000 people, Saint Pierre and Miquelon offers visitors a unique chance to experience a quiet, rural way of life amidst the rugged beauty of the Atlantic Ocean. Visitors can explore the charming villages, enjoy the local seafood cuisine, and discover the rich maritime history of the area.
