From Louannec to Trégastel

Departure: Bassin du Lenn
Arrival: Pors Coz

From Louannec, it’s downhill all the way to Perros harbour, via the Lenn maritime marsh: an ideal bird-watching spot. On the other side of the harbour, keep going to Pointe du Château. You’ve arrived. Enjoy the white sand of Trestrignel and Trestraou, two superb and protected beaches. And the pink everywhere… The most famous granite rocks in the world emerge from the water and the moors, forming odd shapes. What can you see? A hat, a bottle, a head? The imagination ignites just like the pink-hued nuances on a summer’s night! On the way, you’ll see the emblematic Ploumanac’h lighthouse keeping watch. Take a dip on Saint-Guirec beach, at the bottom of the little oratory, and here you are at the harbour, enclosed by a tide mill. As you head to Trégastel, on the Tourony peninsula, enjoy the view of the surprising Costaérès castle, in the middle of Sainte-Anne Bay.

Let’s set sail

Do you want to see the puffins and gannets close up? Sail off to the Sept Îles nature reserve, the largest colony of sea birds in France. Ar Jentilez hoists the sails for a half-day or sunset trip.

An incredible view is guaranteed if you hop on a schooner at the Perros-Guirec Water Sports Centre*; from Trestraou beach, you’ll race between the rocks.

*Subject to availability. Booking recommended.
