Belle-Île has an incredibly rich nature.
It has been classified as a Natura 2000 area since 2006 because of its rich biodiversity. Protected marine areas, bird sanctuary, coastal moors, large sand dunes, or green valleys, these different environments will allow nature lovers to observe a multitude of landscapes during their tour of the island on foot in 5 days or their bike rides.
We draw your attention to the fact that since June 20, 2022, thewalking sticks with tips are prohibited on the entire coastal path, in Belle-île. The use of walking sticks without tip or with tips remains authorized.
These measures are taken due to the risk of erosion of the trail and degradation of the vegetation induced by the use of walking sticks and in order to maintain the quality and sustainability of the trail!
