An hour southwest of Montreal in Saint-Anicet, Quebec, there's a small turquoise-water beach where, as Narcity Québec writes, visitors can pretend they've jetted off on an international vacation.

The beach, a tiny strip within the Parc Jules-Léger, sits at the shore of the Saint Lawrence River's Lac Saint-François and, if Instagram photos are to be believed, commands some impressive views of the riverscape.

Narcity reports that access to the site is free.

The park also includes a picnic area and, according to Google Maps, the Casse-Croûte Annie snack shack.

In addition to this petit parc, Saint-Anicet lists a marina and boat launch on its municipal website for more water activities.
