Brest tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Brest is the second largest town in Brittany and is sheltered by a large natural harbour known as 'La Rade de Brest'.  Here you'll find numerous opportunities for watersports including windsurfing, kayaking, diving and a first-class sailing club. 

Brest itself is a modern port dominated by the French Naval Fleet and is rich in maritime history.  All year round you'll see Brest's waters teeming with vessels, yachts and fishing boats. 

Brest acts as a good base for discovering the nearby pretty villages of Le Conquet and the offshore islands of Ile d'Ouessant.  The island has many gems and incorporates the Parc Naturel Regional d'Armorique which extends to the forests around Huelgoat.
