In the protected nature reserve Castel Koz on the Pointe de Beuzec you will find a rare fortified headland from the Gallic era. Pointe de Beuzec has wildflowers on the rocks, the interesting ruin, the turqois sea and the whirling birds. We enjoyed our stay for several hours.



Parking is at the end of the road. Click on the P in the map to get directions. The path takes you several hundreds of meters towards the end of the rocky peninsula and on a sometimes steep and narrow pathway. The route (shown on the map below) is 3.3 km.
