We love anchoring. That has been hard here in Brittany France. Sometimes the water is to deep and often rocky. More of the time the harbor dries completely out. Most often the places we are able to anchor are packed.
We loved Hoedic island. Here there are no cars, just a ferry to transport people from the main land. The houses are built well and strong from local rock. I like the tight compactness of the streets, which probably helps in the winter when the island must be wind strewn. There are restaurants and two food shops and a lovely camp ground with canvas bell tents. The camp grounds sit perched above two of the loveliest beaches we have been on so far.
The Anchorage is packed but there is plenty of room. We loved this stress free island that reminded us of the West Indies.
