Yeu island crossing
Ile d’Yeu is a must in the department and a crossing of this island seems essential to discover the different Vendée landscapes. This hike, with its 5.3 km, is accessible even to the youngest who will be able to marvel at the various panoramas offered by the island. The departure is Port Joinville where you have to follow La Tourette Beach to take the bike path to the Beach Les Vieilles. This walk is fast nothing prevents you to continue your ride to explore the rest of the island or to stop and enjoy the coves.
