The beaches and creeks of Île Callot
Île Callot is a special spot that becomes an island at high tide but can be accessed by foot at low tide; it offers a number of fine sandy beaches and also some well-protected rocky creeks. Peace and quiet guaranteed! Check the tide times to be sure you have enough time to get to and from l’Île Callot.
