The western point of the island of Groix. A scenic place with some interresting coastal moors and cliffs.
The cliffs and the open landscapes on the top of them of the Falaises de Pen Men are quite good for a various range of species. The cliffs are a nesting site for seabirds like Northern Fulmar, European Shag, Great Black-backed Gull but also provide good conditions for Common Raven, Peregrine Falcon for example. It can be worthy to look for passerines in the moorlands of the place. There is always something to observe : from the most open areas close to the edge of the cliff which are the territory of the Northern Wheatear, the Rock Pipit or Black Redstart to the thickest moors with gorse where you can observe the Dartford Warbler.
There are several ferries per day from Lorient to cross the channel to the island of Groix (see link below). From there walking is an option (5km from Port Tudy to Pen Men), but it's also possible to rent a bike or to travel by car. There is a car park nearby the lighthouse of Pen Men.
