From the beach of "Les Curés" to Port Jean.

Some small beaches are located on the eastern coast: beach of the "Curés", of Castoul and of Port Saint Julien. At Port Saint Julien, on the left side of the beach, you can see the hole of the "Souffleur" (the blower) when the tide is high.

The signal station of the foreland of Taillefer is disused since 2001. There are many traces of fortification (from the 18th Century for the oldest ones). On the west side of the Taillefer foreland, you can access to the beach of Bomborh.

Further, the beach of Port-Fouquet is a narrow sand strip between rocks. On the right, you can see the deep traces of the carts used to unload the granite blocks brought to Belle-Ile for the construction of the Citadel and of the lighthouse of Kervilahouen.
