Discover The Glénan Archipelago
You can’t come to this area without taking a detour via the Glénan islands. From April to September, boats leave from Bénodet, Concarneau, Loctudy, Port-La-Forêt and Fouesnant-les-Glénan (Beg Meil slipway), or Trévignon port in Trégunc, to Saint-Nicolas, the main island. It’s an excellent way to spend the day. The archipelago has just one holiday cottage and camping is forbidden. But in the summer, the Glénan islands liven up with restaurants, a diving centre and its famous sailing school. To make the most of your day here, you can book in advance a commented tour of the island at the Tourist office or a discovery of the underwater environment via an outing on a boat with a transparent bottom.
The archipelago is made up of nine main islands and many islets, in the middle of which is a lagoon renowned for the clarity of its water and the whiteness of its sands; in fact, the area has been described as ‘the Breton Tahiti’.
