Îles de Glénan

The Îles de Glénan are an archipelago of islands about 10 miles off the south coast of Britanny (Bretagne), only accessible in summer. They are famous with yachting people and are as close to caribbean feeling as a place in Britanny can get. They are well known for their sailing and diving schools.
