Groix is an island and a commune in the Morbihan department of the region of Brittany in north-western France.Groix lies a few kilometres off the coast of Lorient. Several ferries a day run from Lorient to Groix.There are a few small towns on the island. High cliffs are on its north coast and sandy beaches in secluded coves on the south coast. Groix is also home to a wide variety of sea birds. Groix is also famous for hosting the only convex beach in Europe, which also moves following sea currents. During the last 15 years, the beach moved half a kilometer westbound.The geology of Groix is distinct from that of the nearby continent, and the east and south coasts have been designated a mineral nature reserve since 1982. More than 60 minerals can be found on the island, particularly blue glaucophane, epidote or garnet. The island mainly consists of schist.Groix provides a dramatic backdrop for the fourth novel of Peter May's "Enzo" series, Freeze Frame, published in 2010.DemographicsInhabitants of Groix are called Groisillons.Bibliography "Gildas, the cabin boy from Groix" 2007 by the students of College Saint Tudy-ile de Groix-*
