Chausey is an archipelago located in the English Channel, about 17 km from the Normandy coast. It is composed of more than 365 islands and islets at high tide, but only about ten are permanently inhabited. Chausey is famous for its beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, which attract many visitors every year. The main activities on the archipelago are fishing, oyster farming and tourism. If you stay at our campsite in Chausey, you will be able to observe a protected natural site, home to a wide variety of sea birds and other rare animal and plant species.

Discover Chausey from the campsite

Formerly exploited for its granite, part of which was used to build Mont Saint-Michel, and then for the production of soda from seaweed, Chausey now lives mainly by fishing and tourism.

If Chausey is so famous for fishing (on foot, with traps…) it is because the archipelago benefits from particularly favorable natural conditions. The alternation of the tides and the immensity of the foreshore, the currents, the tormented profile of the coasts, determine very varied environments and particularly favourable to the marine life: channels of herbariums, underwater dunes, brackish mudflats…
