Camping LE VARLEN is the starting point for beautiful walks or hikes.
Located on the edge of the famous customs path, the GR34, which goes around Brittany via the coast of the Côtes d’Armor, it leads you to meet a natural and wild peninsula!
Some hiking ideas nearby:
Join the GR34, below the campsite. At the bench, turn right and go to join the Jaudy, passing by Beg ar Vilin. There, you walk along the oyster farming area of Plougrescant and discover the cemetery of the boats, which, after having sailed the seas against all odds, have beached here, quietly resting on their sides. Continuing the trail, you arrive at the Jaudy estuary, the Bay of Hell. Follow the path that leads you to La Roche-Jaune. There, you can return to the campsite, passing through the village of Plougrescant.
Still joining the GR34, under the campsite, take this time to the left, at the bench. You then follow the coast of the peninsula to discover exceptional landscapes. You pass by the beach of Pors Hir, and its houses leaning against the rocks, you continue until the tip of the Castle, where a splendid landscape is revealed, where moors, sea, granite giants and houses laid here and there, leaning against rocks are mixed.
You will then discover the site of Le Gouffre and its famous “house between the rocks”, in Castel-Meur. Continuing along the trail, you will have all the leisure to appreciate what surrounds you and to be amazed…
You continue on for several kilometres and see in turn, beautiful granite houses or small fishermen’s houses, resistant to the onslaught of waves and wind, or peaceful in the heat of the sun.
And it is under the bewitching charm of this coastline from the Presqu’île de Plougrescant that you cross Poul Stripo, Pors Scaff, its small ports, its beaches, up to the cove of Gouermel.
