Belle Île Panoramic
Belle-île en Mer is an exceptional island and this tour will give you an overview of its natural environment and rich history, heritage, and culture. In short – the island offers a remarkable spectacle.
Belle Ile displays a wide variety of beautiful scenery from the unspoilt west coast, with its heather-covered cliffs and dramatic rocks, to sheltered beaches with fine golden sand.
The countryside features verdant and lovely green fields, while villages like Sauzon are just as picturesque, with pastel-colored fishermen’s houses and a harbor full of small boats.
Leave Le Palais, Belle Ile's main city, and board your bus for a tour of the wild coast. You will see Port Coton’s `needles´, pyramids of rocks sharpened and shaped by the ocean, where sea foam flies in the air on stormy days.
Head on to the Pointe des Poulains, the Northern island cap, a favorite of the famed artist Sarah Bernhardt, and have a look at Kervilahouen, a peaceful inland village where the impressionist painter Claude Monet painted the same stretch of wild coast 36 times in all kinds of weather.
Finally, you will reach Sauzon, a picturesque harbor located above the entrance of a deep estuary. The village is known for its colorful facades.
Drive back to Le Palais and walk to the pier.
