North of Beresford is Petit-Rocher. Located on the Bay of Chaleur , Petit-Rocher's residents are 92% Francophone. There are hotel accommodations, restaurants and a splendid public park with access to the beach. Every year on August 15, the Village hosts the Rendez vous acadien to celebrate Acadian Day. The name literally means 'little rock', and is pronounced by most anglophones in the region as Petty Roche. The name of the village is reputed to derive from the fact that the village's founders disembarked on a small rock. The village was named Little Roche from 1850 to 1854, then Madisco until 1870, and then Petit Rocher. The hyphenated form Petit-Rocher was adopted in 2009. Some old maps have the name Petite Roche (1812) and Sainte Roque or Little Russia (1827).
