TV Quiberon 24/7 WORLD – I love Houat island

April 29, 2015TV Quiberon 24/7 HD report – Houat is astonishingly beautiful, and generally tranquil, apart from the colonies of gulls who defend their terrain when you walk round the coastal path. This quite secretive but enchanting little Breton island lies south of the Quiberon Peninsula, east of much larger Belle-Ile.
The main reason to visit Houat is for its beaches. East of St-Gildas is the sweeping crescent of Treac’h er Gourèd backed by the smaller sweep of Tréach ar Salus. In the west of the island is the attractive cove of Tréach ar Beniguet, which offers great views over the continent and the surrounding islands.

TV Quiberon 24/7 WORLD – Sunset Quiberon peninsula

July 4, 2014, Sunset is the daily disappearance of the Sun below the horizon, as a result of Earth’s rotation. The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment when the trailing edge of the Sun’s disk disappears below the horizon. The ray path of light from the setting Sun is highly distorted near the horizon because of atmospheric refraction, making the sunset appear to occur when the Sun’s disk is already about one diameter below the horizon.
