The Crozon peninsula: the pearl of Finistère


Facing Brest, the Crozon peninsula offers natural landscapes, picturesque fishing villages, and a dizzying array of breath-taking views.

With its kaleidoscope of high cliffs, idyllic bays of azure blue water, and heather moors tickled by the ocean mist, the Crozon peninsula is the jewel of the Iroise Sea. Cap de la Chèvre, the southernmost point of the peninsula, perched 100 metres above the sea, offers a stunning view of Douarnenez Bay and the village of Morgat. On a clear day you can see Sein, Ouessant, and Molène islands. The coastal path is spectacular.

You can circumnavigate the entire peninsula by foot on a hiking trail from Morgat around Cap de la Chèvre, past glorious coves and sea caves. Once you reach the west side, stop at Camaret, a picturesque fishing port well worth the visit for its model ships in the chapel of Our Lady of Rocamadour, its marine cemetery, and the Vauban tower, a UNSECO World Heritage Site.
