Audierne / Finistere
Finistère, the beauty of a wild and unspoiled coastline.
Last stop before the Ile de Sein and the Pointe du Raz in the Goyen estuary, Audierne, a picturesque charming town is revealed. In the heart of town, an elegant marina bordered by wooded hills, lively quays, pretty alleys and on the left bank, the bustling activity of a fishing port renowned for its quality produce (lobsters, lobsters, spider crabs, sea bass .....).
A stone's throw from the emblematic Raoulic lighthouse, erected in 1887 at the entrance to the estuary, the superb white sand beach of Trescadec flourishes and its crystal-clear waters are very popular in summer. Before leaving Audierne, we recommend a small detour to the Cap Sizun maritime museum which tells the story of fishing and the life of sailors. You can also explore the Breton seabed at Aquashow and attend a superb bird show, a fun and educational moment to be happily shared with the family.
From the Pointe de la Torche (renowned surf spot) to the Pointe du Raz, the coast offers a symphony of breathtaking landscapes: sandy beaches as far as the eye can see, moors, marshes, cliffs and, at the water's edge, the Ile de Sein a unique and unspoiled place just an hour from Audierne.
Further north, in a setting of high granite cliffs and heather flowers: Cap-Sizun with the superb headlands of Le Millier, Beuzec and Brézellec and its ornithological reserve. Nearby Locronan, a medieval town of character listed as historical monuments and one of the most beautiful villages in France, an inexhaustible source of inspiration for painters, writers and filmmakers.
Finistère is also the superb peninsula of Crozon, a true concentrate of Brittany with its small coves with turquoise waters, its cliffs, its ports and hiking trails without forgetting the famous paradisiac site of Glénans renowned for its practice of sailing.
