The island of Groix, an unmissable port of call during your holiday!
With the infinite diversity of its landscapes, each more enchanting than the last, Brittany never fails to capture the heart of all its visitors. The island of Groix, a fabulous beauty spot just 45 minutes off the coast at Lorient, is one of its most gorgeous jewels. Measuring 8km long by 3km wide, come and spend the day exploring its picturesque harbours, secret creeks and idyllic beaches. And you’ll be back in time for a convivial dinner at the campsite restaurant!
Not just the perfect place to drop anchor for your trips off the Breton coast, your campsite in southern Brittany also offers all you could want for an amazing seaside holiday: a wide choice of mobile homes with every comfort, family camping pitches, a bathing area with heated swimming pools and waterslides, sports grounds and free mini clubs for the kids… There isn’t a minute to lose!
Visit the island of Groix with the family
Hurry, it’s time to book your stay in Brittany at our family campsite and set off to discover the island of Groix with the children. There’s no doubt about it, this is one trip that will leave them with a host of wonderful memories they’ll never forget!
As soon as you’ve landed at Port-Tudy, hire a bike and head for Le Bourg, the main village, to stock up for your picnic. The climb may be a bit steep, but it’s more than worth the effort! You’re just 3km from Les Grands Sables, Europe’s only convex beach. With its soft fine sand, its turquoise water and its lush vegetation, you could be on the other side of the world! Then follow the coastal path until you reach Les Sables Rouges, a beach where the sand is an attractive shade of garnet red, very different from its bigger sister!
Visit the island of Groix as a couple
If you’ve set your heart on southern Brittany for your next camping stay, don’t wait to book your excursion: there’s no better way to spend a romantic day together than on the island of Groix!
From Port-Tudy we suggest a choice of 2 different routes. To the south-east: discover the Locmaria area with its picturesque alleyways just perfect for exploring by tandem, before continuing on to the Phare des Chats lighthouse. You’d prefer a refreshing bathe? Then head for Poulziorec, a superb creek to the north-west of the island. Take care, the path isn’t always easy but it’s very definitely worth it!
