Observe unique birds

The archipelago has about 300 species, some of which are endangered, such as the piping plover. The islands are a paradise for these water and sea birds. Birdwatching enthusiasts will be delighted!

We invite you to come and observe them in peace all year long!

Here are a few tips to avoid damaging their habitat and to be able to enjoy them:

  • Always use the wooden walkways and marked trails to avoid being in a nesting area.
  • Avoid disturbances on the water during the breeding season.
  • Do not enter marked nesting areas.

To know the main species present on the archipelago and their description, discover this book written by Attention Fragiles. (in french only)
