Tascon Island in the Gulf of Morbihan

Tascon Island can be visited from Saint-Armel. It is the third largest island of the Gulf.

Tascon Island is a home to a generous herd of Charolais cows, rabbits, donkeys and several thousand birds

There are less than 10 inhabitants that reside on the island the year round.

We took a nice ride on our bikes and the dog also enjoyed the ride from his cart.


Watch out for the tide

The Tascon island is a tidal island. The access can be done by a road two hours before and after the low tide.

We found parking place and shadow next to the church of Saint-Armel.

We also visited the Marais de Saint-Armel.

We wanted to visit beekeepers in Theix-Noyalo, but it was not the right time of the year. 

Then we visited the lake of Noyalo

Admiring the flowering pine apple trees and also the bright orange colour of the azalea or rhododendron we spotted along the way.

At the end of the day, a beautiful evening walk with our dog along the beach towards Saint-Jacaques.
