Our opinion on the But Beach

Adresse of the But Beach : Rte du Ponant 85350 L'Île-d'Yeu

On the western tip of Ile-d’Yeu, there is a succession of small sandy beaches nicknamed But beaches. The environment is wild and attendance very low (one is far from the tourist villages). However, the area is deemed dangerous because of the strong currents on the rocky plateau (Lower Flora) north of the island (many shipwrecks are to be deplored). On the tip of But, there is an old building in the shape of a foghorn as well as the ruins of a semaphore.

To get to this beach, take Pin Road from the hamlet of Pin Ker Gigou, which provides connections to the tip of But.

The tip of But is on the left with the old foghorn (there are many shipwrecks near this peak because of the currents created on the island of Perrin Dogs).
