The largest of the Ponant Islands , at the southwestern limit of Mor Braz ("the great sea" of Quiberon Bay), Belle-Ile "the well-named", owes its reputation to its eclectic landscapes, cliffs torn with the famous Port Coton Needles, preserved moors and dunes, a generous and fascinating nature crisscrossed with bucolic paths and interspersed with cultivated fields.
The Bellilois, who protect its wealth and resources, make it a place of serenity and an authentic territory of recognized responsible tourism of European interest Natura 2000.
The stopover can be done at the port of the Palace , which is to visit, or the port of Sauzon, more picturesque, or in one of the many moorings offered by the creeks, rias or rips in the cliffs.
The next day, another stop of possible charm will be Houat , the little paradise. Houat remains an island of fishermen that make it very picturesque with their colorful boats at the charming little port of Saint Gildas.
Outside the village, there is a preserved and wild nature since the abandonment of the breeding, whose waters are populated with mussels and wild oysters, cakes, spiders and other lobsters
On the east side , the island is lined with the most beautiful beaches in Europe , with fine golden sand, gently sloping to the turquoise water and with a rare convex beach at its northeastern tip En-Tal.
The coast is very cut out of its western part, is of a breathtaking beauty with including the handle of Tréach Er Béniguet bordered by the islands Guric and Séniz which offers a beautiful anchorage.
The navigation around Houat (Breton Houad: the duck) is made particularly interesting by extensions in pavements of islands to the passages of the Teignouse and the Sisters, often abounding with bars and places.
The happiness of tasting its catch of the day , the evening in the hollow of an anchorage, magic of beauty, surely moored in Saint-Gildas !
The next day we will return to Lorient perhaps along the impressive wild coast of Quiberon or after a tour of the equally surprising island of Groix.
