Miquelon is an island and village in Saint-Pierre and Miquelon.
Although it is much larger than Saint-Pierre, it is much less populated. The residents are primarily of Basque and Acadian heritage.
Geologically, Miquelon is three islands, connected by isthmuses formed from drifting sand:
- 1 Le Cap at the north, location of the village of Miquelon (pop. 600).
- 2 Miquelon proper (Grande Miquelon). The name comes from the Basque version of Michael, which was the name of several fishermen who settled here.
- 3 Langlade (Petite Miquelon), which has no permanent inhabitants but is a popular vacation spot. The name is a corruption of the French l'île à l'Anglais or Englishman's Island.
- 1 Miquelon Airport (Aéroport de Miquelon MQC IATA). is a small airport served by Air Saint Pierre, the islands' airline.
