Our opinion on the Bugul Cove

Adresse of the Bugul Cove : D30A 56360 Belle-Ile - Locmaria

Oriented east, Bugul Creek in Belle Ile en Mer (Locmaria) is sunny until late evening. It is only known to the regulars, and fishermen on foot who take up residence at high tides. It is associated to two small southwest oriented shadier. The tip of Bugul was a militarily strategic location, hence the presence of two forts, one from the seventeenth century and the other from the nineteenth century. Also strategic maritime-wise, boats came to shelter in the cove from the westerly winds or Norse. This is still the case today since it is an anchor point. One enjoys the tranquility of the bay and the proximity of Grands Sables, a more active beach, which one can reach at low tide.

Through the coastal road, after Port York, at the top of the hill, take the dirt road on the left (Taol Mor). Take the coastal path on the right 200 m of tricky descent later, one arrives at Bugul. Parking is rudimentary.
