Quiberon Peninsula
The resort of Quiberon at the far end of the peninsula is one of the Morbihan's liveliest and most popular. Besides the good sandy beaches it is also the ferry terminal for Belle-Ile and is always crowded in the summer. There is every type of water sport to satisfy the most ardent enthusiast.

The Quiberon peninsular was once an island linked to the mainland by a string of dunes. Lovers of solitude can lose themselves walking along the Cote Sauvage (wild coast).

Saint-Pierre-Quiberon is 3 miles north of Quiberon. This small resort has lovely sandy beaches. Since 1966 the National Sailing School has been based here, and it is one of the leading training centres in Europe. There is also a sand yachting club.

We drove to Quiberon where we had lunch and took a look at the beach, but decided to seek out one of the quieter beaches aong the coast road, where we managed to park opposite the beach. There is a nice walk along a footpath at the end of the peninsular.
