Morning Light on Cap Fréhel (France)

One of the natural marvels of the Breton Coast and certainly the most spectacular is the multi coloured cliffs of the Cap Frehel in Côtes d'Armor, northern Brittany. Over 70m high the cliffs are home to gulls, cormorants and some rare sea birds. On a clear evening the distant horizon sweeps round the Emerald coast from Normandy's Cotentin pennisula in the East to the Ile de Brehat in the north west.

 

No towns or villages are situated on the peninsula 300 hectares of wild land covered in heather and gorse. However two lighthouses, one from the 17th century and the other one from 1950, are located at the tip of it.
