Our opinion on the Broches Beach

Adresse of the Broches Beach : Rte des Broches 85350 L'Île-d'Yeu

Broches Beach is located northwest of Ile-d’Yeu, between the tips of But and Gournaise. Little known and little frequented, this cove also has a mooring area (on the right with a launch for boats). It's not the most beautiful beach on Ile d'Yeu, but it remains very pleasant (especially on this side of the island). One should be careful when bathing because this part of the island is famous for being dangerous (strong current, many shipwrecks).

On the right side, there is a dolmen and one can easily reach the tip of But. Nice walk in this unfrequented area.

This beach is easily accessible because Broches Road comes directly out of this beach (access from the village of Ker Gigou).
