Ile d'Aix

Ile d'Aix

Island of nature

At 20 minutes from the coast (ferry from Fouras), the île d'Aix offers you an outing in nature, far away from the cars, between the hollyhocks, cypresses and pine trees. The coast is formed by creeks of fine sand, and is ideal for angling or swimming in a friendly environment. You’ll not only find nature on the island as the fortresses and the fortified town used to serve as defense of the town of Rochefort. The île d'Aix can only be visited by foot, by bike or by carriage.
