The Island of Batz

- Back to: One day

A few cable's lengh away from Roscoff (about 15 minute-crossing), the Island of Batz has cast anchor in the Gulf Stream's wake. This quiet island conceals many treasures, the most remarkable living in the heart of its inhabitants : authenticity.
Series of dunes, white sand beaches, green luxuriance of the Georges Delaselle botanical garden, wild coastlines are as many different viewpoints that uncover as you stroll along.

Batz island

Several buildings and relics are testimony to the ancient settlement of the island, such as these remains of Bronze Age or the ruins of Saint Anne's chapel (to the East) or Saint Pol's stole (in the village church). More recently the lighthouse, Captain's houses or the guardroom have shaped the outline of the island...
