Discover Morgat in Crozon

Morgat used to be a small fishing village in the commune of Crozon. Thanks to its exceptional, protected location, Morgat has become a prized holiday resort. Its pretty, colourful facades facing the sea give it a very special charm. Water activities and water sports have a special place of honour here: surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, yachting, fishing, etc. Its charming hotels, splendid seaside resort villas, lively town centre and marina make Morgat the ideal place for a holiday on the Crozon peninsula.

Cap de la Chèvre

Cap de la Chèvre stands at the southern tip of the Crozon peninsula, bordering the Bay of Douarnenez. From the top of the cliff, follow the gorse paths for a long hiking loop. You’ll be able to see the coast of Douarnenez and the Cap Sizun on one side, while the immensity of the ocean adorns the horizon on the west side. A beautiful place to discover on the Crozon peninsula.

Morgat beach

Just a short walk from the town centre and our hotel, Morgat beach is ideal for families. It’s safe to swim and easy to get to. With its large stretch of fine sand and its children’s club, it’s perfect for youngsters and guarantees a happy afternoon lazing around, playing beach games and swimming. The restaurants lining the seafront and the many crêperies will give you a well-deserved gourmet break.

The Caves of Morgat

Heading towards the town of Crozon, discover the Caves of Morgat: Grotte du Souffleur, Grotte de l’Autel, Cheminées du Diable, Grotte de l’Église, Grotte du Toulinguet or Grotte Sainte- Marine… These marine caves are accessible mainly by sea, on boat or kayak trips. The water is incomparably clear, and the caves have a few surprises in store for you, such as the pinkish colour of the rock due to the presence of iron oxide.

The barred spur of Lostmarc’h

At Lostmarc’h near Morgat, shortly after the menhir, discover the barred spur, an ancient defence system dating back to the Iron Age and listed as a Historic Monument. You can make out two enormous earthen levees at the base of the point, jutting out into the sea. Large wooden palisades once stood here. It was behind this protection that the local population took refuge in the event of enemy attacks. The remains of a 17th-century customs shelter are still visible, and the site offers a panoramic view of Cap de la Chèvre to the south.
