Things to do

Despite its small area, Isle d’Yeu boasts 46 km of stunning coastline. This combined with the island’s friendly, laid-back atmosphere make it ideal for a relaxing outdoor getaway. Beautiful beaches, hiking, and cycling trails are punctuated by charming fishing villages and a few historic sights.

-Port-Joinville is the island’s major ferry port, and veritably buzzes with activity. This pretty harbour town makes a great first impression, and many of the holiday homes in Isle d’Yeu are located within walking distance from it. The town’s streets are filled with numerous shops and restaurants catered to holidaymakers and day visitors. It is the largest town on the island and the best place to enjoy local seafood.

-The Vieux Chateau dates from the 14th century, when Isle d’Yeu was forced to withstand threats from the English, Spanish, and all types of pirates. In an effort to provide the island with some defence, the Vieux Chateau was built on the island’s rocky west coast. The chateau still stands watch over Isle d’Yeu to this day and is open to visitors from April to September each year.

-Cycling is a popular activity. There are three major cycling routes located on the island, the longest of which is 30 km long. These routes mainly trace the coastline of Isle d’Yeu, providing cyclists with spectacular views and the opportunity to take detours to one of the island’s many beaches. Cycle hire facilities are available from Port-Joinville.

-The beaches on the island number more than a dozen. The east coast beaches, which face the mainland, are widely considered the best and are a popular place for holiday villas on Isle d’Yeu. The water is calmer on this side of the island, and the beaches mainly consist of soft golden sand. Beaches on the north and south ends of the island are rockier and broken up by a few picturesque coves that are popular subjects for photographers.

-The Port de la Meule is a gorgeous tiny fishing village protected by a harbour located on the west coast of Isle d’Yeu and facing the Bay of Biscay. Striking cliffs surround the village, and its harbour is full of colourful fishing boats that fish lobster and crabs off the coast. There is a small chapel here dating back to the 11th century that stands as a symbol for the village.
