L’île aux Oiseaux
L’île aux Oiseaux (Bird Island) Visiting the island that owes its name to the many birds that inhabit it will enable you to discover the huts “tchanquées” - those famous houses on stilts that have become its emblem. Depending on the tide, they are either surrounded by water or simply standing on the sand. At high tide, you can approach the huts by boat.
