A vast, fascinating coastline

When you think of the Breton peninsula, the first thing that comes to mind is the sea! From the unmissable Gulf of Morbihan to the wilderness of the Crozon Peninsula, from the chic seaside towns of the Emerald Coast to the more unusual Pink Granite Coast, France’s most salt-scented region boasts an exceptionally varied coastline. Large stretches of fine sand are interspersed with secret coves, steep cliffs, shifting dunes and turquoise rias… A colourful backdrop that changes with the light, the tides and the seasons… A hiker’s paradise awaits you on the GR34, the famous coastal path that runs along the entire Breton coastline.

A land of water sports for all levels

Would your clients like to try their hand at water sports during their trip? Alone, with a partner or in a small group, Brittany is THE destination for a water sports adventure. Surfing, paddle boarding, sailing, catamaran sailing, funboarding… Individual or group lessons, with professionals based all along the coast to guide beginners and more experienced enthusiasts through every stage of their sport. Some activities, such as catamaran and wingfoil, are easier than you think! For the more adventurous holidaymakers, there are a number of professional skippers offering offshore cruises aboard vintage boats or more modern vessels. From the safety of the ship’s deck, the coastline seems almost out of reach!

The scent of the sea in a rejuvenating natural landscape

With its unspoilt countryside, salty air and endless sea, Brittany is a great place to recharge your batteries. As the birthplace of thalassotherapy, the region boasts 13 centres with renowned expertise. An absolute must! Outdoor Jacuzzis, seaweed massages, yoga sessions by the sea… Many hotels and holiday resorts have also made well-being their trademark. And for a breath of fresh air, you can watch the tides come in. Don your wellies and face the wind for a truly breathtaking sight!
