About
The appeal of walking over to Callot is witout doubt largely due to the thrill of walking on a sea-bed path that will be covered again as the tide rises - so make sure you check the tide times before you set off ! No cars are allowed to cross to this island. In july and august there is a free shuttle service at the port, allowing visitors the chance to walk across to Ile Callot.

A lovely little visit during the sunset. We drove over the causeway as the sun set over the water and it was beautiful. Some lovely little beaches to visit.

We were a family of five: two parents, two children (6/9) and one grandfather (I). Being there about 20-30 minutes before the passage to the Ile becomes dry does the trick - the kids (and the adults) could slowly walk on the road that becomes passable just in front of your eyes. Tip: check the passage time on the Ile Callot's site.
However, when you get to the Ile there is nowhere one can find a place to get a coffee, a tea or an ice cream for the kids. There are toilets though! Come prepared!

Ile Callot, north of Carantec is only accessible at low tide across a short paved causeway by foot or vehicle. It is a very scenic walk with views across the Morlaix Bay, sightings of some of the few private houses tucked away in the woods plus it's small school and the church which is located on the highest point of the island made an idyllic afternoon walk. However one must be very observant of the tide times as you could become stuck on the island with no where to go for a number of hours. Worth a visit.

First . Check tides as only accessible at certain times. You can actually drive as there is a road .... but it's a novelty to walk it. Beautiful island, perfect for those who like to walk. We brough picnic and weather was great. Worth the visit.

We are staying in Carantec and walked along the headland and across the beach to the causeway.
The island is pretty and a super place for rock pooling and shell hunting.

Having stayed at Yelloh! Village les mouettes this island is only a short bike ride away. There’s a school and a church on the island as well as people’s houses. The tide times should be observed though as you could find your self marooned on the island until the early hours of the morning for example if you don’t get back to the land on time. Many people drive there cars access the causeway but it’s always soaked in sea water so I wouldn’t as I wouldn’t want to encourage rust under my car. The sea is unbelievably tidal in the bay of morlaix it can rise maybe 5m in a few hours

Lovely place for a relaxing walk with great views - places to go for a quick swim and not too much of a intense walk so everyone can enjoy.
Great views & nice place to visit as a family.

It is a very pleasant if not unusual walk, heading out along with the tide to the island. The island itself is very simple. Very picturesque and a photography dream. Flat and not overly long too, and the start point is served by the free carantec shuttle bus.
As for the practicalities, there really is very little there (cheapest morning ever) and there are good clean toilets at the school in the middle of the island.

Very much enjoyed our walk to and around this island. The walk along the causeway at lowish tide and the fact you need to get back in time are a unique feature. We arrived and left a couple of hours around low tide and the sea was far from covering the causeway. Worth checking on the display boards for tide times before going across the causeway.

Glorious white sands and scenery. As with many beaches in the area it is quite difficult to find somewhere to swim when the tide is so far out. We found the best place to get into the water to be at the far end on the north east side where a few boats had moored.

There was a rustic, self-contained feel about the island which felt quite isolated from the mainland. Good toilet facilities available halfway up the island.

So much fun to walk the causeway to the island. Even more fun to watch the tide come in over the causeway. Don’t forgot to check the tides the island is only accessible during low tide
