Casy island

  • Island
Baie de la Somme , face au Village de Prony 98809 Mont-Dore
This previously inhabited island off the tip of the Great South now boasts an exceptional biodiversity!
Named after Admiral Casy in 1854, the island is a magnificent nature reserve spanning 40 hectares. First inhabited by the tribes of Ouen Island, it was then used to house employees of the Prony prison camp who came here to raise livestock and grow vegetables. Located near the Prony Needle and accessible by boat from Baie de la Somme, the island has an exceptional biodiversity: more than 80% of its plants are native species. An hour-long walk along a signposted trail is a great way to enjoy...
