An ideal place to spend a half day in fair weather. It starts with a very unusual 15 minute car/boat journey across the oyster beds to the historic and green island. One warning, the ferry departure point changes by a km depending on the tide!

Tatihou is not just for history buffs ( though they'll be delighted); it's beautiful, unspoiled, easily strolled (about 45 minutes to walk the whole coast) and easily reached. At low tide, you can walk across from St Vaast. Or you can pretend you're storming Omaha...More

I visit a couple of time the island, it's a bit of history back from hundreds years ago to the second world war, the council should put a bit more effet to this lovely piece of history !!!
