Discover the Ile aux Moines by foot
In the shape of a cross, Ile aux Moines, formerly known as "Izenah", is a paradise for walkers.
The trails that run through it (23 km) allow to go around in peace and discover the town or Port-Miquel, the many natural riches of what is nicknamed "the Pearl of the Gulf".
It is a wooded island with varied landscapes: moors and meadows overlooking the sea; oak woods, umbrella pines and cypresses; alleys full of camellias, mimosas and wisteria ....
By taking the marked trails that lead from one end to the other of Île aux Moines, you will also discover its built heritage: villages of fishermen's houses and small ports; crosses, crucifixes and chapels; wells and fountains; dolmens, cromlec'hs and menhirs.
During your walk, you will be able to admire regularly magnificent panoramas on the Gulf of Morbihan and its islands and the time of a pause, enjoy stopping on one of the many small beaches accessible from the coastal path.
