Tourism on the island of Brehat
Brehat Island is a beautiful archipelago that you should not miss visiting during your holiday in our region. Bréhat Island is the main island but there are 86 islets and many neighbouring reefs around it. It was the first natural site classified in France and is located north of Grouezan Island.
The island of Brehat is home to many varieties of flowers thanks to the Gulf Stream, a magnificent warm current circulating around the island. For example, we can find hydrangea, mimosa, eucalyptus, aloe... but the flower that really symbolizes this island is the agapanthus. This flower blooms from April to September and is blue-purple in colour. That's why this island is also called "flower island". You can also discover several species of birds such as larks, finches, tits, robins...
