Characteristics

Description


L'île des Embiez est débordée à l'W par l'île du Grand Rouveau que surmonte la tour carrée blanche d'un phare. Cette île est elle même prolongée par un éperon de roches dont plusieurs hautes têtes émergent et leur extrémité est balisée par la tourelle des Magnons.

Le passage entre le Grand Rouveau et les Embiez est praticable seulement par mer calme et bonne visibilité.

Ile du Grand Rouvean  lies 1.5 miles W of Port du Brusc. It is surrounded by rocks and is the outermost island on the bank. A light is shown from a structure, 14m high, standing on the summit of this island.

Rochers des Magnons, a group of small islets and above-water rocks, lies 0.3 mile W of Ile du Grand Rouveau. Seches des Magnons, a chain of reefs, extends up to about 0.2 mile SW of Rocher des Magnons and is marked by a beacon. Vessels should give these dangers a wide berth.

Ile des Embiez lies 1 mile W of Port le Brusc. The channel between this island and Ile du Grand Rouveau is obstructed by numerous rocks.

You can use this channel only during calm sea.
