The Gulf of Morbihan is a nearly closed bay located in Southern Brittany. At its mouth, it is bordered by Locmariaquer to the West and the Ruys peninsula in the East. In Breton language, mor bihan means small sea.
It is indeed a small sea with 42 islands, many of which are privately owned. This figure is for high tide as a saying goes that the gulf has 365 islands at low tide: one for every year's day.
The Gulf of Mobihan is one of the post picturesque areas of Brittany, with photo opportunities everywhere and coastal walking paths all around.
