You want calm and tranquility, go to Port-Blanc, Penvénan, far from the busy tourist sites.
The rock of the Sentinel is capped at the top of a small gate. At the foot of the Rock, you can see a powder keg.
Enjoy the mid-tide to swim in the small cove between the Rock of the Thief and that of the Sentinel.
The Rocher du Voleur is an exceptional site with a splendid view of the two ports of Port-Blanc and Buguélès. It’s a nice place for a picnic or a nap. At the top of the rock, the panoramic view of the Seven Islands and the surrounding archipelago is a treat for photo enthusiasts. Notice to athletes and climbers without fear. Located to the west, the sunsets are fabulous. We also discover the remains of a battery of guns, built by Vauban to protect the coast from maritime attacks.
Enjoy the view of St. Gildas Island (Gweltaz in Breton) which marks, with the island of Château-Neuf and the Isle of Women, the entrance to the channel of Port-Blanc. This private island opens to the public around Pentecost for the traditional forgiveness of horses. An event to remember.
At low tide, the foreshore will delight lovers of fishing on foot. During high tides the sea retreats to 1500 m, giving off an impressive rocky and wild landscape.
The small chapel of Port-Blanc, of the sixteenth century, is also worth seeing. Hidden behind the market place, she is half buried, and her roof goes down to the lawn! The interior surprises with its riches …
