Hœdic is an island off the south coast of Brittany in north-western France. Its bigger "twin sister" island is Houat.Administratively, Hœdic is a commune in the Morbihan department.GeographyThis island, 800 m wide and 2,500 long, stretches over two square kilometers. It is located in the heart of Mor braz, in the Atlantic Ocean, off the south coast of Brittany (Rhuys and Quiberon peninsulas), 13 km east of Belle-Île and 5 km South-east of Houat. It is part of a line of granite crests which also includes the peninsula of Croisic, Dumet Island, Houat, Quiberon and Groix.Hœdic is a low, undulating plateau; It reaches its maximum altitude (22 meters) in the middle of its eastern part (on the road that currently leads from the village to the hamlet of the Phare). Its base consists essentially of granite and less often of schists. The coast is an alternation of sandy coves and rocky points of variable height, generally more marked to the north (Beg Lagat, the Old Castle...) than to the South (Beg Er Faut, Kasperakiz). There are two marshes, one modest, behind the dune of the new harbor, the other, about twenty hectares behind the dune of the old port. In addition to the main island, the town has several small islands (essentially to the south-east) including Roc'h Melen, Madavoar, Cardinals, Mulons...Human GeographyLong Hœdic has associated the polyculture with the fishery resource. The first disappeared in the middle of the twentieth century, while the second, after a second wind in the 1980s, tends to lose speed today. Much more than its neighbor Houat, it is largely dependent on tourism. Like its neighbor, the greater part of its surface is now subjected to the invasion of brush.
