‘Belle-Ile’ – “Beautiful Island” – is the largest island, it is a bit further afield, beyond the Teignouse passage. It offers many picturesque anchorages, Ster Wen and Port Kerel are found on the ‘côte sauvage' – ‘the wild coast’ – and are two of the most beautiful anchorages in South Brittany, some say France.


The island of Houat or the smaller and more isolated Hoëdic offer spectacular beaches beautiful unspoilt anchorages and plenty of flora and fauna.
