The unmissable Brittany islands
There are many islands off the coast of Brittany, but the largest is Belle-Île-en-Mer. Here you can explore the fascinating rock formations at La Pointe des Poulains, or hike around Les Aiguilles de Port Coton. The island also has several museums that are worth visiting, explaining the intriguing history of the area.
No cars are allowed on the Île de Bréhat, making it one of the best choices for visitors who long to immerse themselves in nature. Take a stroll and admire the flowers that carpet most of the island, or head south for some of the best beaches in Brittany. At the north of the island, there are a pair of lighthouses that make the ideal background for a picnic.
Two little ducks
The words Houat and Hoëdic mean "duck" and "duckling" in French, and these two islands are just as charming as their names suggest. Houat is the larger of the pair and is great for hiking. It has stunning, windswept beaches, dunes, and 17km of coastal paths to explore. Look out for the wild asparagus - but don't pick any, as it is a protected species!
The smaller Hoëdic offers a fascinating glimpse into local history, with two Neolithic sites that date back to 5000 BC. Guided tours are only available in French, but even without a guide, there is lots to see here.
