The Sillon de Talbertin Pleubian

Guided tour of the Sillon de Talbert

The Sillon de Talbert, a unique site in Europe

Site of the Conservatoire du Littoral classified in regional reserve. A coastal strip of sand and pebbles extending into the sea over 3.2 km, the Sillon is a geomorphological curiosity unique in Europe because of its size. Of great ecological richness thanks to its extraordinary flora and fauna, the Sillon is an important place for the nesting of species of seabirds (gravelots), the migration and the wintering of numerous waders which makes it a major spot for ornithology in the Côtes d’Armor. Formerly linked to the Olonne islets, constantly in movement, the furrow evolves according to the flows and the resources of sand and pebbles. Like a mineral tongue at the free end.

Commented excursion of the Sillon de Talbert

In the company of Julien, a coast guard, go up the largest spit of shingle in France. There, an incredible point of view on the archipelago of Ollone will be offered to you. The Sillon de Talbert, an exceptional natural site, wild and very vulnerable (as evidenced by the breach that has formed since winter 2018) will reveal itself under your feet. A unique geological site and an inescapable landmark for many species, this remarkable area is full of curiosities to discover.
