Getting There & Away
Travelling to Belle Île can involve a bit of planning, as taking a car on the ferry is prohibitively expensive for a short trip (a small car starts at €170 return plus passenger fares) and needs to be booked well ahead, even outside peak season.
The shortest crossing to Belle Île is from Quiberon. Compagnie Océane operates car/passenger ferries (45 minutes) year-round, and fast passenger ferries to Le Palais and Sauzon in July and August. There are up to 10 crossings a day in July and August. Fares and frequencies are reduced off-season.
It is also possible to make the trip from Vannes (and Locmariaquer and Port-Navalo) on Navix, which operates ferries to Le Palais three to five times per week between April and September (adult/child return €30/25 from Vannes, 2½ hours).
