This crescent-shaped island is little more than a sandbar emerging from the shallows of the continental shelf. The island is 26 miles long, but only 0.93 miles across at the widest point. The name comes from the French word for "sand". There are no natural trees on the island, although the Canadian government planted over 80,000 trees in 1901 in an attempt to stabilize the soil – all but one have since died. The island’s human history spans more than four centuries. View more
