A veritable inland sea, 20 kms long and 15 kms wide, with many islands and islets, the Morbihan Gulf is a high tourist site and seaside resort on the French coast.
The name in Breton, regional language “Mor Bihan” means “little sea”.
Situated 4 hours from Paris and 1 hour from Nantes, this spot has great beauty and has a rich ecosystem. One must take the time to visit the many charming little islands. There are about 30 of them, but the best known is most certainly the Ile aux Moines to which one can take a ferry. Take the time to stroll in the small streets, and you will be thrilled!
The whole coastline is full of character and worth discovering, such as Saint Gildas du Ruys, Port Navalo, La Trinité sur Mer; Auray, the old town of Vannes, Sarzeau.
And this is historically a Christian area. You can assist at Vespers with the monks at the Benedictine monastery of Kergonan, beautifully sited near the sea, and pray for families at the sanctuary of Saint Anne d’Auray, place of apparitions where Pope John Paul II went on pilgrimage in September 1996.
