The Gulf of Morbihan: one of the most beautiful bays in the world
Peaceful haven, the Gulf of Morbihan with a mild and sunny climate, opens on the Bay of Quiberon by a narrow passage between Locmariaquer and Port Navalo. The waters of the ocean that enter the Gulf, have created over thousands of years, a true archipelago, a unique place where land and sea mingle.
The Gulf of Morbihan is part of the Club of the most beautiful bays in the world.
