Seaside and countryside are the two components of a Breton landscape.
Landscapes are in the eye of the beholder. Enjoy impressive panoramas and viewpoints on the coast and nature. A concentrate of Breton landscapes!
The most beautiful panoramas
Take heights from the points of the Saint-Brieuc bay. It is hard to get a better view of the bay than the one from the Pointe du Roselier. It offers a panoramic view on the bay. Spot the nature reserve, the Hillion peninsula, Martin beach, the seaside resort of Pléneuf-Val-André, cape Erquy…
A breathtaking view!
We are also quite fond of the Béchue pointe in Pordic which overlooks the long Rosaires beach. Not forgetting the Bec de Vir point in Tréveneuc for some nice sunsets.
At the heart of the nature reserve, the Pointe des Guettes remains a great spot to see migrating birds and sunrises.Top 6 most beautiful viewpoints in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc

Follow the stream
The Saint-Brieuc bay has many rivers. The Gouët river is probably its most remarkable one. Discover its secrets like the huge granite boulders, called chaos, which lie in its bed in Saint-Julien. Go kayaking on the Saint-Barthélémy lake which was shaped by the river Gouët. Gaze at the viaduct, you can also discover on foot among the fields and woods. The river Gouët finally meets the smaller Gouédic stream in Saint-Brieuc. They have a rendez-vous with the sea at the Légué harbour.
Natura 2000 is a European Network protecting biodiversity.
