The Pointe de Pen-Hir

To the south-west of Camaret-sur-Mer

The Pointe de Pen-Hir (Breton: Beg Penn Hir) is a promontory on the tip of Brittany, located on the Crozon peninsular. It is in the south-western part of the municipality of Camaret-sur-Mer. In clear weather, you can see the Pointe du Raz and the Île de Sein, as well as the island of Ushant and the Pointe Saint-Mathieu. Rising up to 70 metres above the Iroise Sea, the sheer cliffs are often used for rock climbing.
Below the Pointe are the tiny rocky islands known as the Tas de Pois (stack of peas): Grand Dahouët, Petit Dahouet, Penn-Glaz (Green Head), Chelott, Bern-Id et Ar Forc'h (the Fork).
