Port Tudy, Ile de Groix

Ile de Groix is one of the smallest French Atlantic islands, situated some ten miles SW of the French naval port of Lorient. The main harbour of Port Tudy offers a small but sheltered marina with space for visiting yachts and water and electricity on the pontoons. There are excellent walks around the island and some good bistros in the port.
