    Île-Tudy, located on a peninsula facing Loctudy at the mouth of the Rivière de Pont-l'Abbé, is a charming former fishing village. The village owes its name to the Irish monk Tudy, who founded a hermitage on a small island in 494 AD. As the name of the village suggests, Île-Tudy has long been an island. Until the mid-19th century, it was connected only by a long dune tongue with the continent, behind which were extensive mudflats and salt marshes. When the floodwaters of the ocean washed over the dune, Île-Tudy was completely surrounded by water. Only since 1852, when the construction of a dike with a lock created the Étang de Kermor, the polders and the village are permanently connected to the mainland.
    Today Île-Tudy with its long sandy beaches is a popular seaside resort. All information and current event announcements are available at the Office de Tourisme <ile-tudy.fr>
