Belle-Île-en-Mer, is a French island off the coast of Brittany in the département of Morbihan, and the largest of Brittany’s islands. It is 14 kilometres (8.7 miles) from the Quiberon peninsula.
The island measures 17 by 9 kilometres (10.6 by 5.6 miles) and has an average altitude of 40 metres (130 feet). The area is about 84 square kilometres (32 square miles). The coasts are a mixture between dangerously sharp cliff edges on the southwest side, the Côte Sauvage (‘wild coast’), and placid beaches, the largest being les Grands Sables (‘the great sands’) and navigable harbours on the northeast side. The island’s climate is oceanic, having less rain and milder winters than on the mainland.
The two main ports are Le Palais (accessible by ferry from Quiberon, Port-Navalo and Vannes) and Sauzon (accessible by ferry from Quiberon and Lorient).
