If maritime heritage remains deeply rooted in islands lifestyle, today, growing tourism activity put them under pressure.

What does EnezGreen means? ... Green island in Breton language.
EnezGreen is the name of a small island located in Bréhat's archipelago, north of Brittany, north-west part of France. Enez means island in Breton language.
The unusual history of this small island begins in the 5th century with the arrival, from Wales and Ireland, of monks who sailed there. The ruins of the monastery they built in these old times on the islet, still testify of their courage. Today, the famous international sailing school of Les Glénans occupies the site in a profound respect for the environment. Although the islet has long been occupied by man, its landscapes and its soul have been preserved despite the severe climatic conditions and human activities. A model of development which shows that economic development and sustainability can work together.
