The Bay Islands

 

Discover the islands of the bay of Quiberon

During your holidays at the campsite La Baie, we propose you to go for the day to discover the islands just offshore the peninsula of Quiberon : Belle-île, Houat and Hoedic.
Some villages and little ports with their authentic charms, some natural sites and breathtaking landscapes, some long sandy beaches and small preserved coves with turquoise waters...
These are what waiting for you on the islands of the Ponant !

 

Belle-île en Mer

It is the largest of the islands fin Brittany, 84 km² of escape and dream...
Hikers' paradise with more than 80 kilometers of coastal paths, Belle-Ile offers a wide variety of landscapes.
Ports and rias, creeks and dunes, and about sixty beaches streaked between cliffs with holes of caves ...
It also offers typical villages like the port of Sauzon with its pastel-colored houses along the quays or Le Palais with its citadel Vauban overlooking the harbor and its lively streets ...
Belle-Ile en Mer, they are also exceptional natural sites: La Pointe des Poulains and the fort of Sarah Bernhardt, the cave of the apothecary, the beach of Donnant or the famous hands of Port Coton immortalized by the painter Claude Monet ...

 

Houat and Hoedic

The same fate for these two islands: no cars ...only noise is waves and wind ...
Environment preserved and change of scenery assured on these wild islands which carry well their name "islands of silence"
In Breton, Houat and Hoëdic mean "duck" and "duckling". But there are many other species of birds that you will cross on the trails of these islands with unique flora and fauna!
Much smaller than Belle-Ile en Mer, the "sister" islands offer walks along the many coastal paths and paths and reveal all their natural riches: sandy beaches with crystal clear waters, moors and dunes, coves and rocky points.

You will fall in love with their villages very friendly with their shops (grocery, bakery, restaurants, cafes ...) and their streets full of hollyhocks ...

You will also discover the historical heritage of these islands occupied by man for a long time as evidenced by the presence of many menhirs and dolmens and more recently the construction of several forts Vauban including that of the island of Hoedic which now houses exhibitions on archaeological discoveries, the history of Hoedicans, fauna and flora ...
