Pointe de Trévignon, located 5 km from the campsite, is a picture postcard village on the coast boasting a pretty harbour, huge beaches, granite rocks, dunes and lakes. A definite must-visit.
Trévignon, a charming breton harbour
Greeting you when you arrive is Trévignon castle, an ancient fortress, which stands proudly on the tip of the headland. It is private property so unfortunately not open to the public.
Pointe de Trévignon is a great place to visit, whatever the season !
On a sunny summer’s day or during a winter storm, it offers the perfect setting for a great photo. The typically Breton harbour is also home to the SNSM (national lifeboat association). The lifeboat takes pride of place during the firework display which takes place every year on National Day.
A short walk takes you to the jetty and a rocky islet where its unusual square-shaped green and white lighthouse has been standing since 1924. The seawall on the other side of the lighthouse offers the best view of the Pointe, the harbour, dunes and ocean. If you’re lucky, on a clear day you can catch a glimpse of the Glénan islands on the horizon !
There’s always a lively buzz in the air at Trévignon harbour with the coming and going of fishing boats. On the quays, local fishermen display their daily catch and sell it to the locals and tourists. So treat yourself, you won’t find fresher fish elsewhere !
Lakes and ponds
Trévignon is surrounded by pretty beaches and is the departure point for several marked coastal footpaths. Take the GR34 and follow the coastal path to the east and admire the pretty rocky coves along the way or head west past the huge rocks towards the protected natural area around Trévignon lakes.
Don’t miss the beautiful sunset while you’re here. Just take a seat on the terrace of a restaurant or café and let nature work it’s magic.
