Walking through the island to the phare du paon is a very enjoyable experience: it is about 3-4 km from the docks, but you walk through the village, fields, flowers along the path, meadows and arrive at the lighthouse where you can picnic. Beautiful view...More

Our third visit to the island and we decided to walk to the farthest lighthouse. Well worth it for the stunning views. The weather was fantastic.

Peacock Lighthouse does NOT describe this lighthouse well. It is not beautiful and is not open to the public. It is at the [northmost] end of the island atop an outcropping of massive rocks, with a reinforced rock decking at the base of the lighthouse....More

Great view at the phare site. The walk towards it in the North of the island is definitely worth it.

We arrived on the island having just missed the ferry and spending an hour wandering the nearby coastline (which is nice!) and then started wandering around the island. It is a really pretty place and surprisingly active. When the tide is out you can wander...More
