Campsite near the island of Bréhat

- By sea, from the port of Erquy, a crossing of more than an hour by speedboat from the port of Erquy to Bréhat along the whole bay of St Brieuc.
- By land by taking the road in the direction of Ploubazlanec, where a shuttle bus crosses the inlet to disembark you on Bréhat. The crossing takes no more than 15 minutes.
An ideal destination for a family outing or a romantic getaway which seduces by its authenticity and its typical Breton island landscapes. Brehat is an island without car, you can easily make the tour on foot. The island of Bréhat was the first classified site in France, on July 13, 1907.
What to see on the island of Bréhat
“Brehat is not just an island: it is an archipelago. That is, a large family of tiny universes. Each of them sums up the world. Take the time to address it. A trip to Brehat is a thousand journeys, open your eyes and slow down. The reward is at the end of the slowness.”
Erik Orsenna, of the Académie Française
Once the crossing is done, you disembark in the cove of Port-Clos, rich in vegetation and surrounded by the pink colour of the granite rocks. After a good sweat, you arrive on the Crech-Kerio mound. Two destinations are available: the village or the beach of Guerzido. You can also discover the parish church of Notre-Dame de Bonne Nouvelle and its cemetery, the chapel of Keranroux or the Chaussée Vauban (or Pont ar Prad).
Things to do on the island of Brehat
The island of Brehat is divided into two parts: the northern island wilder and the southern island and are both connected by the Pont ar Prad.
The southern part of the island is the most populated. You disembark by boat in a small village where the inhabitants have gathered. You can stroll through the picturesque streets on foot or by bike. There are no cars, the perfect opportunity to cycle with friends or family! There are some shops, bars, restaurants…
A little further on, you will see the Saint Michel chapel overlooking the bay from a hill, as well as an old “tide mill” (Le Birlot). At the time, he used the energy of the tides to power his millstone. We also recommend a visit to theold fort and prison, which houses world-renowned glassworks.
The northern part is very wild, another opportunity to soak up the elements that make the air so invigorating in Brittany! Faced with this immensity, only the Peacock lighthouse stands in the middle of the moors.
