near the island of Bréhat

There are several ways to get to the island of Bréhat:
– By sea, from the port of Erquy, over an hour’s motorboat crossing to Bréhat along the Bay of St Brieuc.
– By land, take the road to Ploubazlanec, where a shuttle bus crosses the inlet to take you to Bréhat. The crossing takes no more than 15 minutes.
An ideal destination for a family outing or romantic getaway, seduced by its authenticity and typical Breton island landscapes. Bréhat is a car-free island, so it’s easy to get around on foot. The island of Bréhat was the first classified site in France, on July 13, 1907.

What to see on Bréhat Island

“Bréhat isn’t just an island: it’s an archipelago. In other words, a large family of tiny universes. Each of them sums up the world. Take the time to talk about it. A trip to Bréhat is a thousand journeys, so keep your eyes open and your speed down. Reward is at the end of slowness.”

Erik Orsenna, Académie Française

Once you’ve made the crossing, you disembark in Port-Clos cove, rich in vegetation and surrounded by pink granite rocks. After a good sweat, you arrive at the Crech-Kerio knoll. You can choose between two destinations: the village or the Guerzido beach. Let your imagination run wild and enjoy the scenery!

You can also visit the parish church of Notre-Dame de Bonne Nouvelle and its cemetery, the Keranroux chapel or the Chaussée Vauban (or Pont ar Prad).

Things to do on Bréhat Island

The island of Bréhat is divided into two parts: the wilder North Island and the South Island, both linked by the Pont ar Prad.

The southern part of the island is the most densely populated. You disembark by boat in a small village where the inhabitants have gathered. You can stroll through the picturesque alleyways on foot or by bike. There are no cars, so it’s the perfect opportunity to cycle with friends and family! There are a few shops, bars and restaurants…

A little further on, you’ll see the Saint Michel chapel overlooking the bay from a hill, and an old tide mill (Le Birlot). In those days, he used the energy of the tides to power his grindstone. We also recommend a visit to the former fort and prison, home to world-renowned glassworks.

As for the northern part, it’s very wild, another opportunity to soak up the elements that make Brittany’s air so invigorating! Faced with this immensity, only the Peacock lighthouse stands amidst the moors.
