Brittany is all about getting away from it all, whether you’re walking or enjoying good food, following your dreams or just exploring. Along the footpaths, on the beach or in the cobbled streets, take a deep breath of sea air and let yourself go: this is Brittany!

Beaches and seaside activities

Go for a walk without ever losing sight of the sea. In the harbour, stop for a coffee, a plate of seafood  and a breath of sea air… At any time of year, Brittany invites you to step off the treadmill and recharge your batteries. Take a boat trip to an island, laze around on the beach, build a sandcastle, go for a paddle, collect shellfish, chase the seagulls…
