L'Isle-aux-Coudres is a municipality in Quebec (Canada) part of the Regional County Municipality of Charlevoix, located in the administrative region of Capitale-Nationale. It covers the entire island of the same name, located in the St. Lawrence River near Baie-Saint-Paul.

Three villages are on the island: Saint-Bernard, Saint-Louis and La Baleine. Since 2000, they have formed a single municipality. The island is an important tourist destination. Access is by ferry from the Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive wharf (part of Les Éboulements). There is also a small airport. The mayor of L'isle-aux-Coudres is called Dominic Tremblay. He has also been the prefect of the Charlevoix RCM since 2007.

On his second trip to North America in 1535, the September 6 navigator Jacques Cartier christened the island after the name of a shrub called "may" at the time, which will later be called the hazel, then simply hazelnut2 . Over time, the spelling of "couldres" becomes "bends".

Before the first settlers settled there, the place served as a stop for sailors who wanted to bury members of their crew who had died during long voyages. It was in 1720 that the first families settled on the island. Living in agriculture and fishing, these peasants had to find every means to support themselves. That's why they learned to navigate the St. Lawrence River twelve months a year. (See: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle-aux-Coudres)
