Gulf of Morbihan

 

This natural harbour sheltered from the ocean is home to several islands: Arz, Gavrinis, Berder and many more.

There are as many islands as there are days in the year or so the saying goes. In reality, there are around 40 and 30 or so are inhabited. Don’t miss the biggest island: Ile aux Moines nicknamed the “pearl of the gulf”. Everything about it is unique: its shape, its floral lanes and distinctive atmosphere. A real change of scenery !

A cruise on the gulf will give you a better overall view of the fascinating labyrinth. If you prefer dry land, you can walk along over 180km of coastal paths in the gulf.

There’s a non-stop signposted trail from Arzon to Locmariaquer with fabulous vista points along the way.
