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. Make Cap Fréhel a centerpiece of your Saint-Brieuc vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Saint-Brieuc trip itinerary builder app .

  • Nice place to walk in the quiet. A lot of wind the day I went, but nevertheless feels a certain serenity to landing a few moments

  • We came in one morning off-season March, he didn't have many people and a beautiful Sun! The site is beautiful, the Sun reflects the pink rocks of the cliffs, possibility of joining the Fort La Latte on foot from Cap Fréhel. Stroller accessible site (but for our part we have a stroller High Trek) on the paths in stone.

  • An unexpected pearl in Brittany. I was only expecting a simple lighthouse but the cliffs behind it are just fantastic and majestic. The place is very windy, you have to come here and visit in proper clothes. High winds and high waves, this is the power of the nature.
  • Fantastic sea views in a wild setting. Not one but 2 light houses. Great to lose yourself in a wild setting.
  • 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.
  • A place you really mustn’t miss. The strong winds along the coast will blow you away! Such an experience !!
  • Great place for a walk and to see impressive rock stacks.
