Campsite on Crozon peninsula
A relaxed lifestyle, an exceptional region
From the Gwel Kaer campsite, in the bay of Le Fret, we recommend these outings to get to the know the area… From the Pointe des Espagnols to the Pointe des Capucins, you will see the defensive system reinforced by Vauban from 1683 onwards.
When you arrive at Camaret-sur-Mer, at once you'll see the Vauban Tower (listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site) and the Rocamadour chapel, then you can head for Pointe de Pen-Hir, where you'll have a view of the Iroise Sea and the little islands called "Les Tas de Pois" ("Heaps of Peas"). On the way back, you can stop off at the Lagatjar megalithic standing stones.
On leaving Camaret, you'll pass the Kerloc’h lake, protected by the Coastline Conservatory, where over 320 species of plants have been listed, as well as a large number of birds. On your left, you'll see the Pointe de Dinan, which we recommend visiting at sunset for a grandiose spectacle with the majestic coastline and its rock evoking a castle and drawbridge.
You can then go south to explore the craggy, jagged and dune-filled coastline of Cap de la Chèvre. Take the time to admire the surfers honing their skills on the vast beach of La Palue, then set off to the typical and colourful former fishing villages on Le Cap, where the Cap de la Chèvre semaphore stands with its two watchmen (Visits organised by the Crozon Tourist Office).
In the seaside resort of Morgat, make a visit to the Maison des Minéraux museum, and then follow the path towards Île Vierge (or Pointe de Saint Hernot). The light, the clearness of the water and the view of the coastline might well remind you of the Mediterranean and its calanques. After walking a few miles along the coast, you'll be glad to sail across Morgat Bay on board a Sirènes speedboat or in a kayak if you're still feeling energetic, and you can explore the Grottes Marines (sea caves), rich in legend and colour.
Douarnenez Bay is simply an ideal spot for sailing, swimming, competitions and of course thrills.
Before you leave the Crozon Peninsula, you'll be sure to pay a delicious visit to our biscuit makers, pancake makers and restaurants, where you can enjoy all the Breton specialities and perhaps even its language… So, KENAVO AR VECH ALL!
