Alan Rogers Review
Belle Ile is a large island lying around 14 km. off the Quiberon peninsula. Access to the island can be made by ferry from either Quiberon, Vannes or Lorient (reservation is recommended in high season). Le Kernest is a family site and a member of the Flower group. It is located around 800 m. from a sandy beach with direct access via a footpath. There are 100 pitches here, most of which are occupied by wooden chalets and mobile homes. The 16 touring pitches are grassy and well shaded, and all have electrical connections. There is a wooded area for a wilder style of camping. Numerous cycle tracks cross the island, including one around the perimeter. If the idea of spending your holiday on a small island off the coast of Brittany appeals, then Belle Ile en Mer will not disappoint.
Ferries arrive at Le Palais, a fine example of a fortified port by Vauban. From Le Palais, it is possible to take a boat to the smaller islands of Houat or Hoëdic to the west. The little village of Locamaria is popular with artists and, from here, there is a pleasant stroll to the island’s southernmost point at Skeul.
