  • A little grotesque name may be, a legend which tells that once the bodies of shipwrecked is there failed frequently. Unless this is due to the assassins, local wreckers without any soul, or else this Celtic tradition related that this Bay was the place of embarkation of the Druids died on their way to the island of Sein? In any case it is colonised by hotels where guests must not be afraid of ghosts, especially windy nights... Brrrrr!
