Cap Fréhel, Saint-Brieuc

4.5
#1 of 13 in Things to do in Saint-Brieuc
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.

  • From this point you have a beautiful view on the sea, the rocks and on Saint Malo. If you still are, climb the lighthouse. Beautiful view.

  • The cap Fréhel is a wild, soothing and a beautiful place. You really take the day to enjoy the coast and plan a picnic on the sand! Besides, not far away, there is also strong Latte to visit!

  • A unique moment, moving, alone in the rain. Huge sea dismantled, fog and heavy rain. Cold, wet, but incredibly happy.

  • Fantastic view over the coastline. Beautiful colours and lighting. Refreshing walk all around the cost as there is a working trail in both direction East and West. Free car park after 6pm. Great for the nature.
  • Very nice spot for walking with amazing views on the surounding coasts including Fort Lalatte. It is a nesting place for a lot of sea birds which make for beatiful pictures.
  • 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.
  • Wonderful view. Must see. Parking not free
  • Great views and well worth it. Excellent view of the coast, the current in the water and the magnificent skies.
