From Le Croisic peninsula to Le Pouliguen
The Côte Sauvage on the Guérande peninsula is a protected site on the Côte d’Amour. It presents a succession of granite cliffs, little coves, rocky formations, sandy bays and a large number of caves which can be reached at low tide, in particular the Korrigans (named after the little elves of Breton legend).
It is around 15 km in length, and runs through the districts of Le Croisic, Batz sur Mer and Le Pouliguen in the Loire Atlantique region. Along the Côte Sauvage, you will find many marine birds such as brent geese, Sandwich terns or penguins spending the winter on the coast.
