From its cliff, you can enjoy the breathtaking view onto the Ebihens islands, a protected natural site that has beautiful walks to offer.
(IMPORTANT: you have to check weather conditions and tide information before crossing).
On other islands, you are welcome to visit the Colombière bird reserve with its tern colonies
(no access during nesting period, April to October).

Tides and shores
 
   
"High tides
Caress the peninsula.
When the sea retreats,
The shore comes to life."

The shores of the Emerald Coast have the highest tides of Europe.
So come and appreciate the sea’s power and its ever changing scenery.
A great place to collect shellfish and a natural environment to respect.

2 bays
 
   
"In the East,
the Beaussais Bay
and its coloured marsh,
A natural site to stroll.
In the West,
the Arguenon Bay,
“the river”,
Its oysters and mussels,
its estuary and mudland."
