Granite & salt water: welcome to the heart of the Abers archipelago!
Bathed by the Celtic Sea in the north of Finistère, the Abers archipelago lives happily just 30 minutes north of Brest.
Get ready! Open your eyes wide:
3 excuses to venture into the archipelago:
- To perfect your kayak slalom technique
- To be at the heart of the postcard
- Experience the adventures of Robinson Crusoe, plus a snack!
The Abers archipelago is :
- A maritime adventure: the wind blows through your hair, you breathe in the sea air, and your gaze wanders. All around you, little bits of land dot the horizon, arousing your curiosity and coloring the landscape. Granite rocks, rustic green vegetation, fine sand.
- A fragile jewel: some islands are inaccessible. Far from the coast, with no roads, here nature reigns supreme and access is forbidden. Sheltered from our curiosity, Neolithic remains and ornithological cocoons persist, to be observed from afar!
- A generous foreshore: access the inaccessible, it's the art of being in the right place at the right time! At low tide, stretches of sand, rock or pebbles become a place for walkers to escape and fish on foot. Some islands even welcome visitors, depending on the coefficients.
5 main islands with accessible nuggets :
- Those designed to protect our coastline: Île aux Américains and Île Cézon, home to a Vauban fort.
- Luminous islands with lighthouses: Île Wrac'h and Île Vierge.
- The island at the end of the world with its turquoise waters: Stagadon Island.
Cézon Island and its fort
Did you know?
Did you know? Enez terc'h is also known in French as l'île aux américains. In January 1918, more than 400 men and 40 officers set up camp on the island. Among other things, the island served as a base for 19 seaplanes.
How to get the right equipment
An archipelago is a natural environment exposed to the elements.
On the water or on the foreshore, it's essential to be warmly equipped and to remember to warn your loved ones before setting off on your adventure.
