Aiguilles de Port Coton

Top choice in Golfe du Morbihan

Just off the western side of the island, these magnificent rock stacks – depicted in a series of celebrated canvases by Claude Monet in 1886 – resemble aiguilles (needles) and are a must-see for panorama-lovers and photographers. The name Port Coton comes from the way the sea foams around the rocks, creating foam like cotton wool.
