Crozon Peninsula

Breath-taking views across the bays and nearby islands

An integral part of the Armorique Regional Natural Park as well as the Iroise Sea Marine Park, Crozon Peninsula is a nature-lover’s paradise. This geological gem is stuffed full of remarkable sites and sights, with a wealth of architectural heritage that can all be enjoyed on foot.

Set firmly with the ocean on either side, between the waters of Brest and the Bay of Douarnenez, this European extremity is shaped like a cross and is conncted to the mainland by the (rather small) mountain, Ménez-Hom. If you’re holidaying in Brest or Crozon, you’re almost honour-bound to take a trip to the Pointe de Pen-Hir or indeed to Camaret-sur-Mer to see the famous Vauban Tower, designed by French military architect Vauban and classed by UNESCO as a world heritage monument. The sheer, vertigo-inducing drops of the cliffs here and the various fortifications are constant reminders of how this coast’s strategic importance in days gone by. Now, families come for the wonderful beaches, like those in Morgat and Portzic, or the secret charm of creeks on Île Vierge, La Palue or legendary Lostmarc’h. At the very start of August each year, Crozon Peninsula dances to the rhythms of the aptly-named End-of-the-Earth Festival (Festival du Bout du Monde), whose reputation has reached far beyond the frontier of the Ménez-Hom!
