The Pointe du Raz is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque and majestic places in Finistère, thanks to its rocks and far-reaching views. Located after the small village of Plogoff, the Pointe du Raz begins with a small flower-lined path, offering you a walk along the coast, from a high vantage point. Then, you will enjoy an incredible view of the lighthouse, which is isolated from the land and built on a small rock. Tourists say that the walk is enjoyable in both good weather and during storms. Near the Pointe du Raz reception, you will find various creperies, souvenir shops, local products like kouign-amann or Breton palets, and cafes for a break.
