The Crozon Aulne Maritime peninsula is at the heart of the Brest terres océanes destination. Whether you're traveling solo, as a couple or with the family, you'll find all the activities you're looking for close to your vacation destination on the peninsula. In just a few kilometers, you'll go from steep cliffs to white sandy beaches, from lush green countryside to a festive metropolis, from contemplation of flora and fauna to works of art and culture.
Explore the Lighthouse Route
On the Pointe du Toulinguet in Camaret-sur-Mer stands a pretty lighthouse house, guarding the entrance to the Brest roadstead. Its brilliance matches that of the Petit Minou lighthouse in Plouzané on the opposite coast. Brest terres océanes is home to the largest concentration of lighthouses in the world, with 20 lighthouses watching over our coastline. 7 of these lighthouses are open to visitors, offering a breathtaking view as well as stories from the past and present. The 2 must-sees: the Île Vierge lighthouse in Plouguerneau and the Saint Mathieu lighthouse in Plougonvelin.
Travel in Brest harbour
Did you know that the Brest harbor is larger than Paris? It's a protected basin of 180 km2, navigable year-round, and its contours offer exceptional panoramic views.
Visit the Voyage en Rade website to choose one of the 20 viewpoints on offer. We recommend, for example, the view of Brest: you can overlook the château housing the Musée National de la Marine, and turn 180° to see the Ateliers des Capucins and the urban cable car.
Shoes, backpack, water bottle... you're all set!
On foot, by bike and why not in trail mode? In Brest terres océanes, you'll find numerous marked trails and circuits (GR®, véloroutes and Finistrail circuits) of all levels of difficulty and duration. If you're tempted by an itinerant route, you'll be amazed at the variety of landscapes on the Finistère tip, which you'll encounter one step at a time (or one pedal stroke at a time!).
Our suggested walk: Menez Hom, the highest point in the destination, for a 360° view of the Crozon peninsula, Douarnenez bay, Brest harbor ...
