  • The trails leading to the lighthouse are, preferably, to walk (bike it does not necessarily everywhere). Nice point of view.

  • A lighthouse cut into the granite rose that adorns all this wonderful Breton coast, warm color, a great contrast with the blue sky, but it's not just the lighthouse itself, nestled on the extreme northern tip of the island, to attract ... basically, in Brittany, There are many lights ... is the path that you have to do to get there, pretty much the traversal of the entire island on foot, a walk. Meanwhile Brehat enjoys a microclimate of Mediterranean type, and then the lush vegetation is a surprise of abundance and really unusual colors (although, in Britain often observed huge hydrangea blooms, especially), then the scattered houses along the way are all very rich and typically Bretons, with outstanding gardens, which make pleasant and varied the itinerary to the lighthouse. The last stretch of road is cut in this colorful stone (the famous Pink Granit coast, we reviewed is not far from here). and being the jagged coast, opens to continue changing landscape and several openings, until the great northern horizon where was erected our destination. You pass a very agreeable day to Brehat, you should go to the tip of Arcouest (to park without paying then you have to do a bit of walking Street) in the morning after the 9.30 and take the boat to the 10, not later. The trip takes 5 minutes and the landing point is closer to the small center island depending on the tide. To reach the lighthouse there is throughout the day, you should walk slowly and still fall in the late afternoon when the warm evening light color contrast gives even more surviving the environment. An unforgettable day!

  • We have seen since the boat because walking from the port it's been a... be a little hiker! If we stay on the island a few days it is feasible otherwise must get there early and predict. But since the boat it was superb!
