What to see in Quiberon
Welcome to Quiberon, the ideal destination for your stay in the Morbihan. With its air of the end of the world, experience a total change of scenery as soon as you enter the peninsula. At the isthmus of Penthièvre, with the Bay of Quiberon on one side and the Atlantic Ocean and Fort Penthièvre on the other, roll down the windows of your vehicle to admire this incredible panorama and breathe in the marine scents.
The wonderment will continue with the invigorating landscapes of the Côte Sauvage to the west of the peninsula. From the Château Turpault, a few steps from the Maria harbour in Quiberon town centre, venture out on the côte Sauvage road, which will take you to the village of Portivy in Saint-Pierre Quiberon. Shaped by erosion and the winds, this granite coastline offers you its most mysterious corners during your walk.
On foot or by bike, follow the 10 km coastal path, a segment of the famous GR34, better known as the “sentier des Douaniers“, or discover it from the sea by zodiac. Succumb to the beauty of the steep cliffs, the creeks carved out by the waves, the dunes and the green expanses dotted with pink flowers such as the carnation and the seaweed. Feel the strength and power of the ocean but be careful, the currents can be strong. Your walk will be punctuated by unmissable spots: Pointe du Percho, Port Bara and Port Rhu without forgetting the sumptuous protected site of Port-Blanc and its arch, sublimated by the lights of the sunset.
During your stay in Quiberon, take a stroll around the charming and intimate Port Haliguen, an old fishing port transformed into a marina, situated on the eastern side of the peninsula, 1.5 km from our campsite Le Bois d’Amour. Port Maria is a good alternative to the city centre of Quiberon with its traditional fishermen’s houses. Port Maria was the first sardine port in France in the 1950s. It’s a departure point for the islands of Belle-ile, Houat and Hoëdic, and you’ll enjoy its canneries, shops and jetty, just a stone’s throw from Quiberon’s Grande Plage.
