"standing and pins!" (Stand up and hold on!), this is a very true motto. It has to be said that the island of Arz has its own character …: that of the deep-sea fishermen who set up home here in the heart of the Gulf of Morbihan and who are responsible for the island's nickname ' the captains 'island'. Today's captains are the young trainees at the Glénans sailing school who come here for the ideal conditions to learn to sail. If you prefer to stay on dry land, make sure you climb 'the mountain', the highest point on the island which reaches the dizzying height of ….13 meters! The change of altitude is hardly likely to tire you out, just like the highly accessible coastal paths which take you right around the island. You will discover the untamed and unchanged character of this land which is second home to barnacle geese from Siberia and permanent home to many local species.
