Houat is a French island off the south coast of Brittany in the department of Morbihan.Houat is astonishingly beautiful, and generally tranquil, apart from the colonies of gulls who defend their terrain when you walk round the coastal path. This quite secretive but enchanting little Breton island lies south of the Quiberon Peninsula, east of much larger Belle-Ile.
The main reason to visit Houat is for its beaches. East of St-Gildas is the sweeping crescent of Treac’h er Gourèd backed by the smaller sweep of Tréach ar Salus. In the west of the island is the attractive cove of Tréach ar Beniguet, which offers great views over the continent and the surrounding islands.
