    Out of Lomener, the port of Ploemeur, by the star of 09 h 30 (depending on time of the tide and for €27 the ROUND-TRIP), I took the coastal path in a clockwise direction. The landscapes are breathtaking! Printing of expatriation is total and it feels like "end of the world". Locmaria, on the South coast, is a great place! It was past noon, too late to rally a good restaurant to Port Tudy. HeLa! Start from the place we were served reheated pancakes, in disposable plates. The Madam was yet far from overworked! Not very "class"! Next time, because still me have the West coastal path to go, I'll arrange for lunch to Port Tudy, where is the good restaurant, recommended by the very friendly owner and pilot of the star.

    We boarded in PORT LOUIS; because it is cheaper and there is less time to crossing than other cities. Shuttle to avoid if you seasick of course because there are 45-minute crossing from LORIENT and strong smell of fuel. In August the boats are strong of course archi-pleins... at the price. And even more expensive according to the schedules and weekend. Inquire at LORIENT tourism office that will give you all the companies and cities of embarkation. Advice: impossible to park in August on the port of LORIENT because there is the Interceltic festival. (so well informed of dates otherwise you miss the shuttle) More parking anywhere around the port. The island is large enough to absorb tourists because you need to book in advance its place on the boat and the final bit of rotations of ships. Bike tour: 8km long and a maximum 3 wide. During our tour of the island by bike we observed easily many rabbits and a few pheasants. This is normal on an island: windy so a good physical condition is recommended... If you do not want to push your bike on many Dells... and difficult side. In general the State of the railways to bike varies greatly. It's the main roads to the tarred paths which lead on cliffs and rocky parts the paths in pebbles or gravel almost impassable... According to the slopes. I agree with the previous (objectives) opinion on this site about the very bad signs in bike. I remember my visit the beautiful "big Sands", the Port Tudy Beach which is the main fishing port and the place of arrival of the shuttle on the island of Groix. The North Coast, the lighthouse of PEN MEN until the semaphore of BEG MELEN deserve distance. We also saw Port-Lay, that would be... the smaller port in europe. It seems to me that the sailors were saying: who sees GROIX sees his cross for the vicinity of the island were dangerous. For my part: I saw GROIX and... I spare my joy. I think we should maybe y stay 2/3 nights to enjoy different sites depending on the weather. In 1 day it's too intense, even by bike. For a tourist who is not of the Brittany region. I would not stay 1 day because it's too expensive by counting the parking to be paid on LORIENT + the boat go / return + bike rental. The island has no cachet, other islands in Brittany they deserve a visit.
