The nautical chart takes you along the Île de Sein which is about 8km from the coast. The Bay of Audierne stretches from the Pointe du Raz to the Pointe de Penmarch. This whole bay proves to be a truly exceptionally beautiful and natural area with 10km of dune area. Concarneau a medieval port town is also worth a visit.

Our recommendation

If you want to get to know the gorgeous French Atlantic coast then you should also consider the FR6 and possibly the FR7. If you are heading for the Bay of Biscay or Portugal there is no way around the ATL1. We will be happy to provide you with sailing guides for these regions.
