Setting sail from Saint-Malo
Saint-Malo grew rich off the back of maritime trade and its plundering corsairs, a seafaring heritage that is still proudly on display today. It's great fun getting lost in the streets of the walled old town, and the famous medieval abbey of Mont Saint-Michel is an easy day-trip.
Bréhat is one of Brittany’s loveliest islands, with a Mediterranean microclimate that allows plants such as eucalyptus, agapanthus and hydrangeas to flourish (hence its nickname the ‘Island of Flowers’). The island is also famous for its pink-hued granite rocks, and cars are banned, so it’s the perfect place to explore on foot or by bicycle.
The wild and rugged island of Ushant (Ouessant in French) lies off the western tip of Brittany, and the surrounding seas can be tricky to navigate. The island is home to some 400 bird species, along with 600 sheep and 900 people in the little village of Lampaul.
Concarneau’s pretty old town, the Ville Close, is one of Brittany’s most popular attractions. Designed by Vauban and surrounded by medieval walls, the old town sits on an island connected to the mainland by two small bridges. The surrounding coastline is also a big draw for tourists, with some lovely beaches.
France: Glénan Islands
The Glénan Islands, with their white sand beaches and azure waters, are sometimes described as the ‘Breton Tahiti’; visit on a sunny day and you may well agree. There are nine main islands and numerous islets, and popular activities include sea kayaking, diving and glass-bottom boat tours.
Beautiful Belle-Île-en–Mer is the largest of Brittany’s islands, and the wild coastal landscapes inspired some of Monet’s most famous paintings. This peaceful island benefits from a pleasantly mild climate, and has plenty of secluded beaches and coastal paths that are ideal for hiking and cycling.
