Visit Camaret-sur-Mer, Plage de Kerloc’h and Anse de Pen Hat…
Eleven days of walking the Coast of Brittany from Camaret-sur-Mer to Audierne will take you along rugged headlands, dramatic cliffs and across wide sandy beaches. You’ll pass Pointe du Raz, the most westerly point in France and later, perhaps take a break from walking to visit Île de Sein, a small island not far from the coast. Lunch might be enjoyed picnicking among wild flowers or relaxing in a café in a quaint fishing port. And like me, I’m sure you’ll often find yourself sitting on a rock, admiring the view—unable to believe the world could be this beautiful!
NOTE: This walk is not a good choice for anyone with a fear of heights. While I never felt in any danger of falling into the ocean, the path often skirts close enough to the edge of the coast that there is simply no denying that you are, indeed, a long way up!
Visit Douarnenez, Kervel and Pointe du Raz…
The perfect way to approach this walk is to carry a tent, check the weather each day and walk as far or as little as feels comfortable, but there are plenty of other options if, like me, you’re not a keen camper.
