Percé Rock (French rocher Percé, "pierced rock") is an island and sheer rock formation in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence just off the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec, Canada.

It is one of the largest and most spectacular natural arches in the world.

It is a massive limestone stack 433 metres (1420 ft) long, 90 metres (296 ft) wide, and 88 metres (289 ft) at its highest point. The rock gets its name from a large 15 metre (50 ft) high arch near its seaward end.

Together with Bonaventure Island, Percé Rock is part of the provincial Parc national de l'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé.
