Baden, Sept-îles and Ile aux Moines
A few nautical miles from Port Blanc, Baden’s harbour, discover the Sept-Iles (seven islands), an isthmus popular with shellfish gatherers and walkers. When the tide is not too high, you can reach the island on foot and discover the incredibly wild beach where the water is much warmer than the ocean ! Port Blanc is also where you will find the ferry port for trips to Ile aux Moines, the « pearl in the Gulf of Morbihan », a 5 minute crossing. You can also take a tour of the islands around the Gulf of Morbihan and stop off at Ile d’Arz, a mecca for sailing… Fabulous seascapes that will take your breath away !
