Isles of Glénan

The archipelago is made up of five main islands and a string of islets and reefs that form a circle, inside of which is a shallow, calm sea called the "Chambre". A genuine lagoon, its transparent waters are some 20km/12.5mi from the continent; the site has become a nature reserve and home to a botanic species that is unique in the world: the Glénan narcissus. This plant, discovered in 1803 by a chemist from Quimper, only flowers briefly for three weeks in mid-April.
