Brittany: I love Houat
Houat / Brittany – France / 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.

Jutting out into the sea for 9 miles (14km) and just 72ft (22m) wide at its narrowest point, the Quiberon Peninsula is a tourist destination par excellence. With its rugged coastline, sweeping sandy beaches, fishing villages and rich cultural history, this beautiful area of Morbihan won’t disappoint.
On the western side, the 5 mile (8km)-long Côte Sauvage (wild coast) is the perfect place for getting back to nature via a bracing walk. On the way you’ll pass hidden caves, arches and coves – but swimming is strictly forbidden due to the rough sea. The area is rich in flora and fauna, with a mix of dunes and heathland. As well as spectacular views over the coast and Belle-Île, Brittany’s largest island, you’ll encounter the remains of a Roman fish farm and a Bronze Age fort plus plenty of swooping seabirds.
Quiberon’s beaches have something to interest all tastes. The windy, sandy expanses west of Penthièvre in the north are popular with horse-riders, sand-yachters and surfers whereas families favour the sheltered beaches around Saint-Pierre-Quiberon in the south. Wherever you are, you won’t be far from someone who can teach you a watersport or hire you some equipment.
