The Crozon Peninsula is a paradise for walkers with a multitude of footpaths. The Route de Fortifications takes you to 16 different sites built since Prehistoric times to resist invaders. Another way to explore the peninsula is by paddle boarding on turquoise water to coves and caves, or by mountain bike along the 200km paths and 11 designated circuits. Children will love a boat trip to the sea caves at Morgat which have been fascinating visitors for over 170 years ! The 1st weekend in August the whole of the peninsula celebrates the Festival du Bout du Monde, one of the biggest festivals of world music in France, which attracts more than 60 000 visitors in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
« I recommend visiting the Ilot des Capucins at Roscanvel. Inside the Fort, built in 1848 and only accessible on foot via hidden steps and a little stone bridge overlooking the sea, you can see numerous wartime relics, the gunpowder store, the battery… and the atmosphere is very mysterious, children love it ! But ssssh, not many people know about the place and it’s hard to find ! »
To reach the Crozon Peninsula, come to the airport or railway station at Brest or Quimper then take public transport (there is even a ferry from Brest between April and September). It is very easy by car, just keep going westwards !"
