DescriptionMalpeque is known for the remarkable Malpeque oyster. Deemed “the tastiest oyster in the world” at a 1900 Paris exhibition, the species almost completely died out in 1917 from cancer. Miraculously, the hardy oyster overcame the disease and proliferated. One of few creatures known to have conquered cancer on its own, the Malpeque oyster has been the subject of medical research and testing for many years.
At the Malpeque wharf, visitors can arrange deep-sea and tuna fishing expeditions. Fine beach and recreation facilities are available at nearby Cabot Beach Provincial Park.
