This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful sites on the island…Located at the northeastern tip, in the commune of Sauzon, nature is omni- present. This natural site has the particularity of also sheltering a high place of the historical heritage of the island with the fort of the tragedian Sarah Bernhardt.
Located due west, on the commune of Bangor, the site allows you to take the measure of the sinuosity and the character so particular of the wild coast. Islands and rocks of all shapes have always fascinated many travelers, the most illustrious of whom is undoubtedly the painter Claude Monet. Before or after your walk to the Aiguilles de Port Coton, discover the Grand Phare de l’île, a stone’s throw away.
If it is always pleasant to stroll along the quays of the port of Sauzon, this one shelters another particularity to discover: its long ria, this stretch of sea penetrating inland. During high tides, put on your boots to discover the worms, shells, crustaceans and many other species that hide in the mud.
While this beach is well known among surfers for its beautiful rollers, Donnant Beach is also characterized by its dune, one of the most spectacular on the island! The dunes cover about sixty hectares on Belle-île and are home to a very wide variety of plants, sometimes rare and all adapted to the drought.
