Île-aux-Moines

The Isle-aux-Moines is located in the Gulf of Morbihan. It is 7 km long and 3.5 km wide, and it is shaped like a cross. The “Pearl of the Gulf” as it is called, casts its spell over you as soon as you disembark.

The island offers many walks and bike rides: four hiking trails invite you to explore the island. Allow about four hours to walk around the island.

Stroll along 14 km of coastal paths and admire the natural beauty of the island. See more megalithic remains, including Cromlec’h Kergonan, and the Dolmen Penhap.

Enjoy the beaches at La Grande Plage and Port Miquel, swimming and water sports.
