Jutting out into the sea for 14 km and only 72 feet (22 m) wide at its narrowest point, the Quiberon peninsula is a tourist destination par excellence. With its rugged coastline, vast sandy beaches, fishing villages and rich cultural history, this beautiful region of Morbihan will not disappoint during your camping holiday in Damgan.
Sailing enthusiasts in particular appreciate the Bay of Quiberon: dinghy, catamaran, windsurfing, the wind is always there. The water is ideal for swimming, so swimmers can indulge in their favourite activities on a calm sea which is a little warmer than on the Ocean side. Enthusiasts can also enjoy shore fishing and shellfish gathering.
The “little beach” is just a few minutes’ walk from the houses, ideal for your holiday. Not far from there is the pretty “Plage Bleue”, in the fishing village of Kerhostin. On Tuesday morning, take a look around the pretty market
The beaches in Quiberon have something for everyone. The windy, sandy stretches to the west of Penthièvre in the north are popular with horse riders, sand yachts and surfers, while families favour the sheltered beaches around Saint-Pierre-Quiberon to the south. Wherever you are, you will not be far from someone who can teach you a water sport or rent you equipment.
The wild coast is on the west coast of the Quiberon peninsula. A short stretch of road a few kilometres long takes you along the Atlantic coast, offering breathtaking views on the way.
With steep cliffs, wild creeks, sunsets and seagulls, the road follows the movement of the sea and offers spectacular views.
The wild coast is the perfect place to get back in touch with nature. Set off for an invigorating walk during your camping holiday in Damgan.
On the way, you’ll come across hidden caves, arches and coves, but swimming is strictly forbidden due to the strong current.
The area is rich in fauna and flora with a mixture of dunes and heathland. As well as spectacular views of the coast and Belle-Île, the largest island in Brittany, you will also come across the remains of a Roman fish farm and a Bronze Age fort and see many diving seabirds.
By car, bike or on foot, discover the wild coast, starting from Château Turpault, take the coastal road to the old Fishpond, the Prompt Box, Port Kerné fountain, Pointe de Kervihan, Port Bara , the beaches of Port Blanc and its arch, Pointe du Percho and finally Pointe de Beg in the Aud..
