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.
