Get on board for a cruise headed for the Glenan islands ! The Glenan archipelago is located off the coast of Concarneau and is the must-do getaway of your holidays in Brittany. Family trip or day out with your friends to enjoy the sandy beaches and swim in a crystalline water, you will love it ! The Tourist Office can help you choose your cruise company and give you advices to ensure a memorable day.
Fine sandy beaches, a crystalline water, a clear blue sky… Imagine yourself, lying on your beach towel with your feet up, being lulled by the soft lapping of the sea!
This little Breton paradise, off the coast of Trévignon is a nature reserve designated Natura 2000 with nine main islands and several islets. The largest island of the archipelago (with a 3km² surface area), is called Saint-Nicolas and your stopover will be precisely on this island. As you may have understood: no hotels nor shops there. You will find two restaurants and endless nature.
A dream destination for wide-open spaces lovers. We love it mainly to enjoy the beaches and to swim but not only…
Come between April and June to discover the Glénan’s emblem: the narcissus, a unique flower which blooms only once a year!
Walk around the island (30 minutes) at low tide, when the sandbank is uncovered, to discover the Island of Bananec.
With a diving mask and scuba, explore the seabed and enjoy the limpid water.
You can vary your enjoyment by laying your beach towel wherever you want on the vast stretch of white sand and fully thrive the beach. Wonderful holiday pictures guaranteed!
The first Sunday of September, you can attend the Pardon of the Glénan. On the programme: open-air Mass, sea blessing, music, and traditional dances in costume. Great atmosphere and friendliness are assured!
Booking is highly recommended at least 48 hours in advance.
You want to make a reservation? You can drop by the Tourist Office! We can do it for you!
Bring a picnic! Or if you’d rather have lunch in one of the two restaurants of the island we would advise you to book a table before buying the boat tickets.
Did you think of everything? Swimming suit, beach towel, mask and scuba, camera, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, bottles of water and parka just in case, you never know…
