This island, right in the middle of the bay, is a must-do visit. You can reach it from the Peninsula by boat – under sail or motor – or in a canoe.
Before you set off, make sure you check the tide tables! At high tide the island has a surface area of 165 hectares, but at low tide it covers 1,690 hectares. The scenery is completely different – you’ll need to come at least twice to appreciate it!
The island is a protected natural area. If you come by boat or in a canoe you can moor alongside and play Robinson Crusoe for a real holiday memory.
As you follow the paths, you may be lucky enough to meet the island warden, who will give you some valuable tips about how to explore this unique site as well as advice about protecting its environment.
