Top tips for day trips

Exploring by bike

Discover the breathtaking landscapes of Brittany at your own pace by bike. Cycling is the best way to explore our beautiful region whilst protecting the natural environment.

Pleasure boating

There are numerous marinas along the coasts of Morbihan (Lorient, La Trinité sur Mer, Vannes, Arradon, to name a few). The boats and yachts coming and going from the harbour create a spectacular sight.

Auray harbour

Take the time to visit the harbour in Auray. Wander at leisure around the cobbled streets lined with timber-framed houses and art galleries.

At the gates of Brittany and Vendée and in the heart of the Presqu’ile de Retz, Pornic is the southernmost of the Breton ports.
