Island of Yeu, Ile d’Yeu, Pays de la Loire, France
Explore incredibly beautiful landscapes on the island with friends or family. Enjoy the charms of the wild coastline listed as a “natural site” with its steep cliffs overlooked by the formidable “Vieux château” in Ile d’Yeu. The coastal path, which is currently being designated as a GR (Grande Randonnée) path, as well as the interior network, make the island a wonderful location for walkers.
Use the sign-posted routes as your guide and take your time with a leisurely ramble.
Ile d’Yeu offers a wide range of sea-based activities: sailing, sea fishing, sea kayaking, scuba diving, surfing, etc. As well as a large number of beaches for swimming or sunbathing. Ile d’Yeu for a long time was the leading tuna port on the Atlantic coast and fishing is still important here, with bass, monkfish, sole, turbot, sea bream, hake and various noble shellfish being unloaded at the docks of Port-Joinville.
