Un paysage digne des Caraïbes

No, you are not mistaken, welcome to the Glénan Archipelago. Turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, rays of sunshine and you are in the Caribbean, or almost!

Off the coast of Fouesnant, between land and sea, you will spend a day full of change of scene. The pride of the Bigouden country and the Breton Riviera, the reputation of the paradisiacal scenery of the Glénan Archipelago has been proven. With your feet in the water, contemplating the horizon, or for a moment of swimming, this seaside resort will fill you with memories. You can also spend a few hours on this archipelago during a stopover on a boat cruise. You will see a few pleasure boats off the coast of these islets in South Finistère.

This archipelago is preserved by refusing to allow unauthorised camping or any other type of accommodation that would spoil the place. This is why you will not find any camping on the island.

Les Glénan, richesse de la nature

En 1974, une partie de l’Archipel des Glénan est classée Natura 2000 afin de préserver son emblème, le Narcisse des Glénan. Cette espèce de fleur de la famille des narcisses fleurit de mars à avril dans un parc naturel protégé. En longeant les sentiers, notamment le sentier des Douaniers (GR34), vous profiterez d’un cadre arboré et verdoyant, un véritable plaisir pour les yeux.

In 1997, the reserve was expanded by several hectares to protect birds and marine animals such as the grey seal and bottlenose dolphin. It is also in the waters ,that a protected ecosystem is the playground of many marine species such as basking sharks (totally harmless).

For years, the biodiversity of this exceptional site has been protected and many species of fauna and flora have been saved. Guides to good practice are available to visitors in order to raise awareness among tourists and locals of the need to preserve natural sites.

Une école de voile mythique

In 1946, two lovers of the archipelago decided to share the Breton paradise and created the sailing school Les Glénans.

Every year, thousands of trainees discover water sports on the fine sandy beaches. Qualified and passionate instructors share their favourite pastime, it is a real "school of the sea and of life". Conviviality, sharing and respect for nature are the key words when you walk through the doors of the water sports centre.

Now established in different towns in France, such as Bonifacio, Ile d'Arz, Marseillan or Paimpol, they share their passion for sailing boats but also kayaks, kitesurfing and other board sports.

For those who are curious about the marine world, the International Diving Centre (CIP) of Les Glénan welcomes you from April to October to learn or improve your skills. Thanks to scuba diving, you will discover a world you never imagined. A unique opportunity not to be missed!
