You won’t find any towns or villages on Cap Fréhel 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.

Les paysages sont superbes. Balade incontournable. Le seul petit point négatif : montée des marches du phare payante. Si vous venez en voiture, comptez 3 euros de parking. more »The landscapes are stunning. Must ride. The only minor negative: steps of the paid lighthouse. If you come by car, 3 euros for parking.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Fantastic landscape. Parking was 3€ but definitely worth it. We spent 2 hours walking around the coastline looking at the spectacular cliffs.

A great scenery over the sea. Tha lamp house is worth the visit for the view, but not for the exhibition which is poor. The place is well organised and it is worth paying the 3 EUR parking to help conservation if the place.
Liane HeinJune 24, 2017We have visited the beautiful Cap many times and each time it looks different. The old kiosk was torn down so you here now is self catering. The toilets are somewhat bad narrow, but were clean during our visit. Unfortunately, the lighthouse was closed. The vegetation has brought back the CAP itself. Earlier, you saw lots of bunkers and today everything full of blooming flowers. It's fun here to wander and photograph beautiful pictures.
Alessandro BenedettiAugust 26, 2017Tip of the Breton coast of rare beauty. The lighthouse, seagulls, the gentle breeze and steady, make this wild and unspoiled. Gorgeous
David MerlinAugust 22, 2017Beautiful scenery, a good sensational wind. Entry pay and the rise of the lighthouse also. Allow €10
