Houat

Houat (Enez Houad in Breton) is a French island off the south coast of Brittany in the department of Morbihan.

It is located, along with two other major islands, in the entrance to the Baie de Quiberon.

Its “twin sister” island is Hoëdic.

Administratively, Île-d’Houat is a commune of the Morbihan department.

The town is high on the west bank of the river Auray on the edge of the Armorican plateau which is cut deeply by the river.

The port of Saint-Goustan is also in the valley, east of the River.
