This pretty peninsula of low hills, coves and beaches south-east of Roscoff makes for a good couple of hours on the coastal path. It is a holiday area, so you will seldom be out of sight of houses or people, but is has great charm. In order to make a circuit, you’ll need to walk across through the town, which isn’t a hardship.
More exciting will be to cross the causeway (around low tide only, so plan your walk carefully) to the beautiful, slender, low Île de Callot to the north. This stunning island has its own pilgrimage chapel and nature reserve (at its tip, 3 km from the start of the causeway).
