Cap Frehel, Saint-Brieuc

#1 of 9 in Things to do in Saint-Brieuc
Lighthouse Landmark
You won’t find any towns or villages on Cap Frehel peninsula. The marshes and moorland make it difficult to construct structures on the peninsula, and the cliffs surrounding the site make it difficult to access it by sea. Your best access route is by walking the Sentier des Douaniers path to the wild, windswept area to view seabirds at the reserve, historic lighthouses, and a fortified castle straight out of a fairytale.
