  • Plogoff where was our vacation home could take the coast path and thus arrive on foot at the edge of the tidal wave. The view is impressive and there is no problems to imagine the dangers for the boats by the rocks. As the coast path is not always easy to walk, most of the people going by car to the parking lot and walks on comfortable paths up to the lighthouse. It is less dramatic, but there is still a fantastic view.

  • A very atmospheric place. For me, one of the nicer in Brittany. Rocks and water paint a beautiful picture. Take a look here at the end of the day, to look at the sunset, which further enhances the experience (of course, weather permitting). Place I visited in November 2016, so parking was free, entrance also (in total I do not know whether the season for pay, but for parking for sure). At the car park there are several pubs, where you can have dinner or just a snack, a few souvenir shops and public restrooms (toilets are also referred to as the cypelku). From the car park to the same "lookout point" on the Cape leads a path length of about 1.5-2 km pleasant walk. I saw people walking with the dogs, so I do not think animals are forbidden (though I do not know, or does not change this). At the end of the view is gorgeous: beautiful rocks, striking about water, a lantern in a short distance. As the sun sets, it gets by me even more beautifully. I definitely recommend visiting this place, being in the area.

  • Very nice view at the end of the world! Good little walking around the semaphore and laying on a rock to contemplate the landscape!

  • The view is of course amazing (and I cannot think what could be during winter). Actually a bit too busy compared to other "pointe" in the area and a bit commercial with pay parking (but it is to sustain the expense to maintain the site said a note) and many bar/restaurant/souvenir store). Anyway it is worth the stop.
  • Beautiful rocky coast with views in all directions. I wouldn't visit at the height of the season though, it was busy enough at the end of September.
  • Place for nature lowers. Lots of difficult paths, full of stones. View to some famous fares de Bretagne ))
  • The best way to arrive is from La Baie des Trépassés, or the Bay of the Dead. You can lie on he beach, avoid the parking fee and enjoy the extraordinary view of the Bay and the island of Seine.
  • One of the best places of bretagne. It's really wild. Usually the weather has strong wind, so be aware of that. It's a 30 min walk from the parking, but it is very pleasant. Go see there the sunset!
