Cliffs in Camaret-sur-Mer
Pointe de Pen-Hir
At the end of one of the arms of the cross which is drawn of the peninsula Crozon, namely the western arm just a few kilometers from the small seaside town of Camaret-sur-mer is the Punta de Penhir. This area is largely considered a nature reserve which is surrounded by spectacular cliffs. Here many dare to climb, and it offers beautiful views of the vast Atlantic Ocean and the bays, beaches and surrounding peaks, it is even possible to see the Pointe du Raz if weather conditions are favorable. Three isolated rocks called Tas de Pois extend up to this point of the ocean. We were in luck, as that evening it was lovely and the normal rainfall in November didn't fall so we were able to enjoy a perfect sunset on the Penn Ar Bedd (Finistère), to land in Breton. I'm sure that from any point of the Breton coast sunsets is incredible, but we decided on the Punta de Penhir and I think we found an ideal location, that was one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever beheld.
Cities in Camaret-sur-Mer
One of the most beautiful ports of Brittany and holds a special charm with its ancient marine cemetery, chapel, Vauban Tower, beaches and spectacular cliffs. Camaret-sur-Mer is located on the tip of the peninsula of Crozon and well worth a visit for a day or two. The life of its docks remind the viewer that the port was an important center for sardine fishing and lobster fishing as well. In the port area, between boats, you should not miss the marine cemetery, where the silhouettes of boats and old machinery speak a glorious past. On the opposite side, the chapel of Notre-Dame-de-Rocamadour has a fabulous ship graveyard where you will see model ships donated in gratitude from those who were saved from a shipwreck. Take a walk to the Vauban tower, called "golden tower" for its ocher. Declared a world heritage centre it protected Camaret from the many sea threats that plagued Brittany. Nearby, you can find the alignments of Lagatjar. The most important in the area with hundreds of menhirs. Discovered in 1928, some of them are more than 3 m in height. They are characterized by an arrangement of perpendicular lines. Another mystery of Brittany.
