The Sillon of Talbert

An almost metaphysical experience in Britain between the sea and the sky

The furrow of Talbert ((Sillon de Talbert in French) is a long strip of sand and rocks surrounded by the sea. It is 1.7 miles long and 35 meters wide. At the end of the walk there is nothing to do except contemplate the landscape. The Sillon of Talbert is a protected area, don't expect to find a lot of restaurants and shops. It's a nice place to discover.
