The Crozon peninsula, which is often called the peninsula at the end of the world, boasts a variety of wonderfully unspoilt landscapes; it is located in the Amorique Regional Natural Park in the far west of Brittany, between Brest and Douarnenez.
We know the Crozon peninsula well and so can recommend surfing, fishing and diving spots, sheltered beaches for families, more exposed beaches for sports enthusiasts as well as restaurants.
The peninsula’s must-visit sites
Morgat, its beach, activities and entertainment, and marina
To the west, Morgat cove opens out onto the Iroise sea, between the Pointe du Raz promontory and the Cap de la Chèvre, and to the east onto Douarnenez Bay.
This old sardine-fishing port is today a charming and colourful seaside resort. You can enjoy relaxing on its famous sandy beach, which is perfect for families, or stroll along the beach to the marina (shops, restaurants and ice-creams shops with their colourful façades).
You’ll find a whole range of water sports, including sailing, kayaking, stand-up paddle and dug-out canoes but you can also visit the caves and hire bikes at the marina.
During the summer months, make sure you don’t miss the “les mardis de Morgat,” Morgat Tuesdays, with concerts and shows by the sea.
Beaches and coves
Find the landscape that suits your mood, whether it’s a sweeping expanse of white beach (Morgat beach, Plage de l’Aber beach and Goulien beach), the small, private coves with turquoise waters that extend from Morgat to Cap de la Chèvre, vast, pristine beaches like La Palue or Lostmarc’h or the peninsula’s promontories and rugged landscapes.
Whether you’re looking for a rugged or more family-friendly spot, there’s something to delight everyone.
The île Vierge
The île Vierge is located between Morgat and the Cap de la Chèvre headland on the south coast of Crozon; this jewel of the Crozon peninsula has been voted the 7th most beautiful beach in Europe.
Camaret sur Mer
This artistic, maritime town appeals to nature lovers as well as heritage and architecture enthusiasts who will love the UNESCO listed Notre-Dame de Rocamadour chapel and Tour Vauban.
It’s atraditional port where you can enjoy a stroll along the bustling quays lined with brightly painted houses, visit the artists’ district or “cimetière à bateaux” (boats’ graveyard).
The pointe de Pen-Hir promontory and the Tas de Pois rocky outcrops, located directly off the headland, are a must-visit site. From here, you can see from the pointe du Raz to the pointe des Espagnols.
Seaside walk / Hike / GR 34
There are several marked coastal paths, accessible to all, including the GR 34 (120 km). One of the best ways to explore the Crozon peninsula is to walk around it.
There are a variety of breath-taking landscapes: forests, heather moors, coves with turquoise waters, cliffs and beaches.
