Bordered to the north by the Pointe du Raz and to the south by the Pointe de Penmarc’h, Audierne Bay opens up onto the Atlantic Ocean. Set off to discover the bay and its multiple landscapes and places to see close to Naéco Hostels: Auberge, hostel & Camping Baie d'audierne and au Pouldu.
Its pebble strips bordering the beach and its marshland along the dunes offer exceptional fauna and flora.
We suggest, from south to north:
Start at the Pointe de la Torche, a true surfer’s paradise.
Then head to Treguénnec Beach, a place full of history with remnants of the Todt forced labour camp from World War 2. The pebble crushing factory was used by the German army to help build the Atlantic Wall.
Take a detour to Pouldreuzic and visit the Maison du Pâté Hénaff, a museum dedicated to the famous pâté brand.
Pors Poulhan and its Bigoudène statue by the sculptor René Quillivic (depicting a peasant woman in a traditional hat from the Bigouden region in Brittany) marks the border between the Pays Bigouden to the south and the Cap Sizun to the north.
