Information to know
How to get to the island of Bréhat?
To reach the island of colours, you must go to the tip of Arcouest, near Paimpol.
Ferries are available to make the crossing. It takes about 10 minutes to get there. Depending on the tides, you will be dropped off at different slipways.
When is the best time to explore?
For good weather, we recommend visiting us in June and/or September. The temperatures are gradually rising and there are not many people around yet. This is the ideal time to do everything at your own pace under the Breton sun.
How to get around the island?
Soft mobility is your friend. Forget the car, it is forbidden on the boat shuttle. You will have to discover the island of Bréhat on foot or by bike. Would you like to have an unusual experience? A tractor tour, like a small train, is offered to visitors.
