"One of Britanny's jewel" Belle-Île-en-Mer by chess_machine

Belle-Île-en-Mer Travel Guide: 40 reviews and 107 photos

Belle-Ile en Mer is one of the place I have enjoyed most going to. First time and only one since now I have been there I was 17. Funny to imagine it has taken me so long to go there since it is only a hour and a half drive from my hometown... I had been to Los Angeles 10 000 kilometers away but did not know this jewel 80 kilometers away.

So, what make Belle Ile en Mer special?

First, the name means "Beautiful Island" and it is not a lie. The island is lovely and shows magic cliffs. Many people have seen famous pictures of Belle Ile staring a lighthouse near wonderful cliffs that are smashed by a rough water.

In Belle-Ile, you will find great beaches, super pure blue water, and you will think sometimes you must be somewhere between Corsica and Cassis... but the 16 degrees water will remind you you are in Britanny.

Anyway, if you are going in Morbihan or an island lover, you will greatly enjoy visting Belle-Ile en Mer.
