Viewing the Gannet colony of Les Etacs is not to be missed!
The rock of Les Etacs, situated only 100m from the coastline, is home mid-February until the end of September to nearly 6,000 pairs of Gannets. A walk to the Giffoine offers a fantastic sight of the landscape made alive by the movement and the sound of these majestic birds.
A telescope and a bench are on the site to enable visitors take their time and have a closer look at the colony.
