I want to come to the Sea Shack, how do I book?

We do not take reservations by phone and our innkeepers do not have access to social networks.

I have a question or a request, how can I reach you?

I want to come and play with my band: send an email to soumissions@aubergefestive.com

For a question that is not related to accommodation or shows: info@aubergefestive.com or 1-866-963-2999 or Facebook

If I arrive without a reservation, can I still have a place to sleep?

In a cabin, in a room, in a dormitory or on a campsite, reservations are required! As long as you are there, we advise you to plan your trips to Gaspésie. It is even said that there is sometimes only one place left to sleep on the whole peninsula.

What are the arrival and departure times?

Self-autonomous stays (camping, vanlife, etc.)

Arrival: 3:00 p.m. – Departure: 11:00 a.m.

Chalets, rooms, dorms or houses

Arrival: 5:00 p.m. – Departure: 11:00 a.m.

Why do you show full even if there is room on the beach?

So, then, THE question we are asked most often!

We want to preserve the beach, the banks, the forest and our facilities
We respect the rules of public health
We ensure your safety to continue the party for a long time
We want to offer you a top, top, top service so that you keep the best memories (and so do we).
Supreme honesty: our toilets could not survive ;).

Yes, but… What does one more change? We all know it, one more at the Sea Shack does not exist!

Is the festive hostel festive?

Yes, it is indeed the most festive hostel in the world. However, festive does not mean forfeiture… We encourage everyone to celebrate healthily while respecting their own limits. Are you coming to party with your gang? This is the best place to do that! Remember, however, that you are not the center of the world and everyone experiences the Sea Shack differently. The watchword is RESPECT of all towards everyone. At the Sea Shack, we listen to each other and follow our vibe and that of others! If you come with your family, it’s perfect, but the Sea Shack is not the place to come and have the best night’s sleep!

Can I bring my own alcohol?

Yes, but know that at the tiki-bar we offer local beers and various cocktails in a most enchanting environment. By buying at our bar, it is not only the Sea Shack that you are encouraging, but also Gaspé microbreweries as well as a local, independent and proud to be Quebec economy.

Personal alcohol must be consumed on the beach or in private accommodation.

Will there be shows this summer?

Ben quin! Our program will be unveiled on April 21, 2023 at 7 p.m. PILE.

Can we make beach fires?

Absolutely! Yvan “Dubois” still passes by with his mountain bike to supply the campers with wood, but he is not always present. Since he has spent his life in freedom, we do not want to tie him up. So if you want to be sure to make a fire and not burn our furniture, bring your own wood. :-p

I am hungry, is there a communal kitchen and/or canteen?

La Cantine Barberousse will be present to offer you various dishes and dishes to enjoy on our large furnished terrace.


La cuisine commune est de retour en 2023 après une absence marquée. Elle sera ouverte tous les jours de 8h à 21h. 

Vous pouvez aussi prévoir glacière, poêle portatif et autres essentiels pour cuisiner en plein air! Nous avons des lavabos extérieurs ainsi qu’un abri pour cuisiner lors des jours de pluie. Notre terrasse est aussi accessible pour les pikniks. Le site propose ‘’spots’’ majestueux pour déguster vos repas. Attention au sable, ça peut te scrapper une paella ou un hot doyy.

Is there a dormitory option?

Yes! We have 4 dorm spaces in the Chill Shack. Reservations are made via info@aubergefesstive.com.

Why have we set fixed arrival days for chalet stays?

Ensure the sustainability of our site and allow nature to remain queen there
Reduce travel and laundry and thus protect
Always be ready and in control of the cleaning and maintenance of the site
Be able to effectively maintain the chalets with a small team in the context of a labor shortage. You don’t find cleaners on every street corner!

I live in the region where I am on vacation in another accommodation. Can I come to the Sea Shack for a ride?

Yes! You can be present during the opening hours of the bar (12:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.) and the Cantine Barberousse (variable schedule) if the traffic and the space still allow us to accept people. A daily access fee of $10 will be charged in high season or at certain times depending on traffic to access the site between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. All inhabitants of Haute-Gaspésie can access the site free of charge, upon presentation of valid proof of residence. To come and enjoy the evening with us, you must arrive on site before 11:00 p.m. After 11:00 p.m., only people with a valid accommodation reservation will have access to the site.

Is there a minimum or maximum age to come to the Sea Shack?

Whether you are first, second or third generation all-purpose, you are more than welcome at the Sea Shack! You have rather watched Bobinette, we will welcome you with great arms, golden age card or not.


Les réservations doivent être faites par une personne âgée d’au moins 18 ans. Toutes les personnes de moins de 18 ans doivent être accompagnées d’un tuteur légal ou de son parent.

Is it possible to shop, bring me back a souvenir or find me a disguise directly at the Sea Shack?

Our La Légria boutique offers you our range of Sea Shack clothing, each one more creative than the next. You can also purchase, at modest prices, costumes to enhance your Sea Shack experience.

Do you provide bedding and towels?

Yes! We provide pillows, pillowcases, sheets, blankets and towels. It is even forbidden to use your own sheets, pillows or sleeping bags in our indoor accommodation.


Pour les séjours en autonomie, vous devez apporter votre literie ainsi que vos serviettes.

I'm traveling solo, will I make friends?

The cutest question on the list! If we had to define the Sea Shack in one word, it would certainly be GATHERER.

At the festive inn, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift would become best friends, François Legault and GND would have a little rock-throwing session in the sea, yes, yes it’s GATHERER as well!

Do families also trip to the Sea Shack?

YES!!!! It is an enriching and original environment for children with all these beautiful people who walk everywhere on the site. But hey, since we want to be very honest with you, we don’t usually impose a curfew and some travelers may party all night long. But hey, it’s no different than sleeping under coats at a family party.

***Children have access to the bar terrace (until 9:00 p.m.) if accompanied and at all times under the supervision of a legal guardian.

Can I sleep in my car?

Yes! You can sleep in your car no problem. To do this, you must refer to the “Stay in Autonomy” package. Your automobile must be of a standard size, such as a small van (westfalia type) or any other car not exceeding 21 feet (or 6.4 m) in length. We do not accept types of accommodation attached to a trailer (caravans, fifth wheel, etc.).

***We reserve the right to cancel or refuse access to one or more people who have made a reservation for a stay in autonomy and which would include a non-regulatory vehicle.

I have a dog, can I bring it to the site?

Yes, however, we ask that dogs are always, always, always on a leash. In addition, dogs cannot enter all buildings, even the bar!

If I want to go hiking, but don't feel like going to the Park, what can I do?

You can take the opportunity to do the trails of the Parc Côtier de Ruisseau-Castor which culminates with the ascent of Mont Festif. Departures are on foot from the Sea Shack.

So can I see whales and other sea mammals from the Sea Shack?

The whales come to visit the Sea Shack every day at 2 p.m. Don’t miss your chance!

This is obviously a joke, we do not control the whales fortunately! We see them very often, you can even sound the trumpet to warn other travelers. Watch out friend! If you ring the bell and it’s a rock, you pay for your tour!

I would like to volunteer, how does it work?

Yes! Our needs vary widely, which is why we manage this on a case-by-case basis. For more information, send an email to guillaume@aubergefestive.com.
