Camaret

Postby Archie » Sat 27 Apr 2013 - 10:59

Camaret is situated on the most western point of the Crozon Peninsula but is ideally protected from the Atlantic weather as it is tucked round Point de Penhir and faces east. There is a long breakwater that has a delightful church at the end together with the magnificent old fort which used to protect the town from invaders (including the Brits!). Camaret is a smaller version of St. Ives, in Cornwall, as it has many art galleries, shops, cafes/bars and restaurants surrounding the picturesque harbour. There are two marinas at Camaret which can be entered at all states of the tide. CORNISH LEGEND is normally berthed in the inside one which is the first one you come to when driving along the harbour front. If you carry on to the outside marina you pass the old fishing boat hulks, that Camaret is famous for, pulled up on the foreshore. On the other side of the breakwater is a lovely sandy beach which is one of many in the area. There is free parking at both marinas. Camaret is beautifully positioned for sailing as it is only about half an hour from the entrance to the Rade De Brest and is central for cruising north or south along the Breton coast. We can also pick up our guests from the Moulin Blanc marina at Brest, if flying in.
