Pointe du Van
Pointe du Van : Michelin's recommendations
The Pointe du Van lies at the southernmost tip of the Bay of Douarnenez, beyond the famous Pointe du Raz. Its magnificent landscape equals that of its neighbour, as do the winds to which it is subjected. A half-hidden path takes you round the headland, commanding fine views of the coast including the Pointe de Castelmeur, Pointe de Brézellec, Cap de la Chèvre, Pointe de Penhir, Tas de Pois and Pointe de St-Mathieu opposite. Off the coast of the Pointe du Raz stand the Île de Sein and the Vieille lighthouse. Be careful if you wish to attempt the descent.
