Finistère takes its name from its geographical position: Finistère meaning the end of the earth. The points and cliffs are classified "Grand Site of France". Finistère is part of Brittany and is a beautiful region with exceptional natural landscapes. Discover this region by staying at the Penquelen Huella farm.
The island of Ushant is the largest island of Finistere, there you can try the stew of lamb cooked in the clods! Closer is the island of Batz, but also the island of Molène west of the tip of the Corsen or the island of Sein that you can see from the Pointe du Raz. The Glénan archipelago is made up of nine islands and lots of small islets. This archipelago is perfect for practicing nautical activities.

From north to south, from Cap de la Chèvre to Pointe de Pen-hir, the Crozon peninsula with its turquoise waters, its small coves and its golden sandy beaches is a paradise on earth! It is also labeled "remarkable space of Brittany" because of its exceptional geological heritage. The Virgin Island beach in Morgat is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
On the peninsula you will see the famous Tas de Pois from the Pointe de Pen-Hir, but also megalithic alignments classified historical monuments that attest that this peninsula has been inhabited for millennia!
In the north, there is the peninsula of St. Lawrence with its white sand beaches and turquoise and transparent sea. Always along the north coast, you arrive at Landunvez, a perfect spot for surfers! Then a little further, there are the dunes Tréompan which integrate into one of the finest dune landscapes of Finistère. Southern Finistère is known to sportsmen, especially Audierne Bay and Bigouden country. But also the Pointe de la Torche which regularly hosts major competitions.
