Then head for the slipway, passing by the chapel, daring to venture behind to enjoy a breathtaking view of the slipway, the islets and the village of Blainvillais.
It is said that at high tide there are as many islands visible as there are weeks in the year (52), and at low tide as many days in the year (365).
You can see the Eiffel Tower, and yes, that’s the name given to the balise de la Crabière because of its metal framework reminiscent of a well-known silhouette in Paris.
Continue on your way and pass by this famous house with blue shutters nicknamed, the captain’s house, the house “Marin Marie”, the official painter of the navy. He was also a storyteller, inventor, adventurer and lover of Chausey. The little beach below is now called l’Anse à Marin, in his honor.
We rejoin the slipway. Our loop is complete as we’ve returned to the starting point.
This walking tour is unique each time, depending on the vegetation, the lights and the tides.
Our Tourist Information Offices offer ticketing for the Isles Chausey.
