    I like the birds ... most of the time

    No a real warning or danger. In fact, you could be really happy for beeing so closed from wild birds but it seems they were here before us ....

    Watch the trees before the installation of your tent ... or enjoy your wild impressionist coating using ecological raw materials (it was not my tent but ...)

    The road ends

    Nothing special to list, but some current advises for an island with sharp cliffs, coastal roads and cracks in cliffs:

    1. Don't forget: The road ends in the cliff!
    2. The hike may involve certain risks, specialy near cliffs
    3. The marine mist can rise very very fast
    4. The persons subject to dizziness can feel ill at ease in certain points of the wild coast
    5. Know how to read approximately a map: the coast is very cut and roads follow arms of the sea: they rise and come down
    6. Out of the roads! at your own risk (photo 3)

    Emergency telephone numbers
    Medical help/SAMU.......... 15
    Police............................... 17
    Fire & accident/Pompiers. 18
    SOS - all services .............112

    No hospital on the island!

    by louisec Written Jul 16, 2003

    If you have a medical condition or if you need to get to a medical specialist of some kind, Belle-Île-en-Mer is not the place to be! My boyfriend had an allergic reaction and got all swollen when we were there. Luckily I speak french and could explain on the phone to SOS what had happened, but what I found out was that there are only general practioners on the island. If you need a specialist of any other kind, you have to get to the mainland. Good to know.... Now I forbid him to eat shellfish...
