16 reviews of Pointe du Raz

Spectacular points along the French coast

Finding ourselves in one of the most spectacular points of the French coast, specifically in Finistère at the western end of the Cornuaille peninsula. It's the most Western point in France, also one of the most visited. Located opposite the island of Sein, this place was chosen by many famous writers in the 19th Century, which converted it into a great tourist attraction, causing a lot of damage to the environment. Thanks to the French government's and its recovery plan for the area, some existing buildings were demolished and in turn, the damage they did to the surrounding area demolished with them.

Most westernpoint in Europe

The westernmost point in Europe is the Pointe du Raz. This wild and amazing scenery attracts visitors every summer. Between steep cliffs and a green ocean, on a clear day when you look at the island of Sein Atlantic and Ar Men a lighthouse appears by magic. The Pointe du Raz is classified as National Spot and rises to 70 m in height. La Punta, sculpted by the ocean is the meeting point of the winds. You have to make yourself strong because it blows with force. In this place stands the lighthouse islet Square Vielle. For many years this place was feared by sailors, but now hikers, surfers and lovers of contemplation use its charm for sports and meditation.

Westernmost point of Brittany

We went to "Pointe du Raz" (in Finisterre), the westernmost cape of Brittany and France. It's spectacular, I almost reached the Cape Point but the walk is quite dangerous and the fall ...well, I'm sure you can imagine. So, almost there, I came back. Take care, the outdoor parking was six euros (the most expensive we've found so far). Although you are almost at the end of France you can find little shops, bars, creperies ... However we opted to eat a picnic.
