The sea

 Beaches, the Bay and the GR34 walking route


5th worldwide, considering its tidal amplitude,The Bay of Saint-Brieuc is first and foremost a vast coastal space of cliffs, inlets, dunes, promontories and beaches (fifteen in all). The chemin des douaniers (the "customs path"), a communicating pathway running along the coast of Brittany, once used by customs officials and coast guards, is today open to hikers allowing the visitor to find all the best views of the Bay.

Taking this GR34 route through the terrain of the Bay of Saint-Brieuc you'll discover the fascinating diversity of a landscape that changes with the rhythm of the tides.
Running between cliffs and dunes, the path is like a balcony looking out over the sea, a protected maritime domain.
