On the Crozon peninsula
At the extreme west of the Crozon peninsula, the municipality of Camaret-sur-Mer is spread out along its three rocky points:
• To the north is the Pointe du Grand Gouin which shelters the port from the gusts of the north-westerly wind.
• To the east is the Pointe du Toulinguet, the perfect home for the military surveillance tower built on its extreme point.
• To the south is the Pointe de Pen-Hir, a major listed natural site, and which extends into the sea with a chain of tiny islands known as the Tas de Pois (stack of peas).
Rocky cliffs, dunes and fine sandy beaches alternate along the 15 km of coastline.
La Pointe de Pen-Hir, which extends into the sea with a chain of tiny islands known as the Tas de Pois (stack of peas), is without a doubt the most famous image of the Crozon peninsular. Its tall cliffs housing small creeks attract a significant number of visitors. From there, you can see all of the Iroise Sea from the Pointe du Raz to the Pointe Saint-Mathieu. On a clear day, you can spot the nearby islands – Sein, Ushant, Molène – and the view is breathtaking. The evening sunsets there are splendid, while the night skies are lit up by the majestic lighthouses that dot the coast.
