Beaches and seaside activities

Go for a walk without ever losing sight of the sea. In the harbour, stop for a coffee, a plate of seafood  and a breath of sea air… At any time of year, Brittany invites you to step off the treadmill and recharge your batteries. Take a boat trip to an island, laze around on the beach, build a sandcastle, go for a paddle, collect shellfish, chase the seagulls… With the channel on one side and the Atlantic on the other, Brittany’s coastline – the longest in France – offers exceptional landscapes that change with the seasons and the tides. Come and experience Brittany to the full, with its rich variety and intense light, for a real sense of well-being.

A huge shoreline with a thousand different faces

With the changing of the weather, the waves and the passing of time, the Breton coastline is constantly reinventing itself. Whether you fancy a relaxing stroll on the beach, a brisk walk along the coast path, a romantic cruise or a family sailing trip to the islands with all sails unfurled [or just a visit to the seafront ice-cream parlour] the coast of Brittany offers it all!
