A dramatic place with crashing waves and strong winds, Pointe du Raz is a promontory that extends into the Atlantic. The local Breton name for the point is Beg or Raz, and the name means "the end of the world." The lighthouse "La Vieille" is clearly visible from the rocks, and you can walk the breathtaking cliff top to view the perilous waters, the intriguing island, and charming fishing ports.

The show is beautiful and unique in every moment: the sky changes all the time, the landscape is never boring and the show is great. You can't remain insensitive to this show! Counsel: when you're in the parking lot go directly on the left (avoid shops that you can visit on the way back) and along the coast from the South to get on tiptoe: the show is the grandest. The return can then be made by the road (or the North coast but that isn't too fancy).

Beautiful landscape in all circumstances (storms of course but almost tropical color to the Sun). You see, grazing, the silhouette of the island of breast out where the first resistance fighters to London to join General de Gaulle. Parking easy, in season, with integrated toilets, shops, creperies-bars together. Passable well-marked path for strollers and wheelchairs. At the end and overlooking the Bay of the dead, monument to the glory of the castaways. NB: to get to the island of Sein, the pier is located in Audierne: no access from the tip of the Raz
Nous sommes allés voir la pointe du raz avant la tempête de fin d'année et le spectacle était au rendez vous. Un vent à couper le souffle, des grosses vagues, c'était magnifique. more »We went to the edge of the storm before the storm of year-end and the show was at the give you. A wind breath, big waves, it was beautiful.
It's a beautiful place, which is worth the trip. The loop of raz is great to do. The price of parking is not excessive for the day and the view of the site. The shops are not imposed if we don't stop it is not required. I recommend this is place to landscapes.
Very nice site worth visiting! Parking is paid but not excessive! A shuttle and a path allow people with disabilities to access the tip (take the path left of the semaphore) without difficulty. A point information next to the shops will be able to guide you on hikes or walks.
Wonderful site. A wild side. Splendid view of the sea. A must see
The end of the world. Beautiful in the setting sun. But to go all the way, walk half an hour after the parking
