The adventure begins at Pointe du Chevet

 

It is at low tide of course that you can venture on foot to the island of Ébihens, but only after having carefully checked the tide times before departure so as not to have to spend the night there. The adventure begins at Pointe du Chevet where the staircase cut into the rock takes us to the beach. A sandbank, rising from the water as if by magic, guides us to the entrance to the island.

At this time of year, calm reigns on the foreshore and the only noises we hear are those of the gulls or the crunching of shells split under our feet.

Play the Robinsons

Around thirty minutes are enough to reach our rocky spur. Only a central path crosses the island from south to north, plunging us into a nature of moors and undergrowth. A cozy and energizing atmosphere at the same time. Sounds of birds, smell of pine trees, sound of waves, we take the time to reconnect with the nature that surrounds us. Like Robinsons, we first set off in search of the Vauban Tower before reaching the north of the island. Who will be the first to see the Cap Fréhel lighthouse in the distance? But the tide is already starting to rise, telling us that it is time to return to dry land.
