Interesting facts about this location
Miquelon Island (also known as Grande Miquelon) is one of the three main islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon. It is connected to the similarly-sized Langlade Island (Petite Miquelon) by a thin tombolo sandspit known as La Dune, which in turn forms a part of the boundary of the Grand Barachois. Miquelon and Langlade form the commune of Miquelon-Langlade, with a total population of 616 inhabitants (2006 census). Most residents live in the settlement of Miquelon at the north end of the island.

La Dune is the name of the 12 kilometre-long tombolo sandspit which connects Miquelon Island and Langlade Island in the French North American territory of Saint Pierre and Miquelon. A large natural lagoon, Grand Barachois lies at the northern end of the sandspit, where it joins Miquelon. In the 18th century it was still possible to sail a boat between Miquelon and Langlade, but by the end of that century La Dune had closed in to form an isthmus between the islands.
