The Bigouden region, 20 km
The Bigouden region is made up of around 20 villages each with its own unique charm. The diverse and wild landscapes include sandy beaches and rocky coasts where the ocean’s waves roll in. It is also a haven for birds.
To the north, the Pointe du Raz is a major French natural site perched on a 70-m-high cliff. Sculpted by the ocean and wind, the site alone makes a trip to the region worthwhile.
In the south lies the famous village of Guilvinec. People come from the four corners of the globe to experience the bustle of the port when the coastal fishing boats return with the day’s catch.
