West of Cornouaille

West of Cornouaille

Where the land meets the sea, La Cornouaille advances boldly into the ocean, offering us an amazing spectacle!

You will leave Quimper to reach the port of Douarnenez via the magnificent medieval village of Locronan, a little jewel a few kilometres from the sea. Then you will walk along the coastal path to discover Cornouaille’s north coast, one of the wildest coastlines in Europe. You will walk from headland to headland along steep cliffs bordered with countless rocky outcrops. You will discover the Cap Sizun nature reserve, with its dusting of heather and plants suited to the iodized, salty sea spray. Many birds nest here, cohabiting with a scattering of sheep. Past the Pointe du Van headland you will discover the extremely beautiful Bay of Trépassés before admiring the grandiose and wild spectacle of the Pointe du Raz. You will continue this journey on Cornouaille’s South coast, which is a bit less wild. Sheer cliffs and rocks give way to a few beaches and even banks of sand dunes, before you reach Audierne and the Goyen estuary. Then you will enter Bigouden country and see the landscape change dramatically. The coast becomes an endless beach, stretching over 15 kilometers right to the Pointe de Penmarc’h headland, bordered by a string of sand dunes and pebbles behind which lie the marshy areas that are home to a rich and varied flora and fauna. Finally, you will discover the fishing ports of Le Guilvinec and Loctudy before reaching Pont l’Abbé and its famous inhabited bridge.
