6 Stunning Beaches in Belle-Île off the coast of Brittany

6 Stunning Beaches in Belle-Île off the coast of Brittany

Belle-Île means quite literally a “Beautiful Isle at Sea” and is Brittany’s largest island. With over 60 beaches and coves we had no chance of seeing all of them in the weekend but here are 6 Stunning Beaches in Belle-Île that we did get chance to see.

Belle Ile is just off the south coast of Brittany in France not too far from Vannes and Auray.  We caught the ferry from Quiberon on a bright sunny morning with a heat wave forecast for the next 3 days.  We parked our car in one of the large park and ride car parks on the edge of Quiberon.  We did not book parking in advance but understand in the peak months it’s advisable to do so.  There are frequent free busses that deliver you straight to the ferry terminal from most of the car parks (Ferry Booking info: http://www.compagnie-oceane.fr/reservation/?rub_code=53).

Bortifaouen was our first proper exploration. We simply took a turn off the islands main road (still really a track) and drove down another track to this beautiful beach and ate our picnic.
