This small port where lobster fishermen set their pots on the rocky seabed is tucked into a creek along the south coast of the Île d'Yeu. The high-perched, 11C Chapelle Notre Dame de Bonne Nouvelle overlooks the harbour. Each year on Easter Monday, the locals converge here in pilgrimage. Follow the coast to reach the Trembling Rock, a 7m/23ft-long rock rising above the waves which, if pushed in the right place, can be made to move!
