The island of Île d'Yeu — Miscellaneous

Île d'Yeu is an island and commune just off the Vendée coast of western France.

The island's two harbours, Port-Joinville in the north and Port de la Meule, located in a rocky inlet of the southern granite coast, are famous for the fishing of tuna and lobster.

Neolithic markings in the native stone and an unusual concentration of megalithic dolmens and menhirs attest to the island's early sanctity.
