A wild landscape…
The visit of this advanced point allows you to discover the sinuosity of the coast, islets and rocks of all shapes including the needles of Port Coton.
Their name comes from the whipped foam that, in heavy weather, forms large foamy flakes similar to cotton.
…immortalized forever by Claude Monet
The painter Claude Monet, who lived in Kervilahouen, just a stone’s throw away, revealed the beauty of these jagged rocks in a few famous paintings. He was originally supposed to stay just two weeks on the island, fascinated by the beauty of the landscapes, he will stay two months. As an impressionist, he worked in nature, facing the ocean, suffering the assaults of the wind and the sea. He painted 39 canvases of the wild coast with three privileged sites: Port Coton (the pyramids and the Lion Rock), Port Domois and the Port de Goulphar.
