for families

Once upon a time, there was a marvellous place that offered families a whole host of activities. There was never time to be bored, and the days were simply too short to try everything on offer...

10 great ideas for families with young children

Your little darlings will be amazed when they discover this area, filled with sights and sensations. This Breton peninsula is a land of adventure and the sea can be enjoyed from the youngest age.

Shellfish gathering at low tide - get your boots on!

Armed with a bucket and a fishing net, wait until the tide goes right out and off you go. Under the rocks is the kingdom of crabs and tiny shellfish; on the sand, it’s the haven of razor-clams, cockles and winkles.
Even if you might not be lucky enough to gather a large feast, you’ll enjoy the breeze in your hair.

Adventurers for a day

Head for Plougasnou or Carantec and you can set off for the famous island fortress, Château du Taureau. Think yourself lucky that you’re only here for a visit, not to be locked away for years like some of the previous inmates here. Are you keen to find out more? In that case, book your place.

The Green Way, or "Voie verte", by foot or by bike

Come and stroll along as a family in complete safety on these sheltered trails that can only be used by non-motorised transport - no cars or motorbikes, just pushbikes, the occasional horse and of course, plenty of walking. In the heart of the country from Morlaix to Carhaix, you can breathe deep and enjoy the fresh air.
Children can gently cycle or even glide along on their scooter knowing that it’s safe from traffic - and as these Green Ways are mostly made from old railway tracks, they are usually wonderfully flat so even tiny legs can manage them easily. Should you wish, you can hire a bike from Morlaix.

Be the architect of the greatest Sandcastle

The beach is a fantastic playground where the imagination can run riot. A bucket, a spade and a bit of creativity then you’re off building your own wonderland in the sand. Build your sandcastle and add all the details you desire - a bit of driftwood for a drawbridge, seaweed for a forest and shellfish for treasure. Timeless fun!

Back to school - but this time a Sailing School

Your children will be impatient to get on their lifejackets and head out if they hear about what’s on offer. Try the mini sailing boats called "Optimist" which is perfect for young would-be mariners. Choose from any number of courses, lessons and outings to suit your little ones - and of course, the bigger ones, too!
Contact the Sailing Schools and the Jardin des Mers de Carantec.

All aboard for an unforgettable day, "By Rail and By Sea"

Here’s an experience for all the family, especially if the little ones like gallivanting around. Let yourself be guided into the alleyways of Morlaix, board a train at the train station and head for the charming cobbkled streets of Roscoff. Having explored there, take a boat to the Île de Batz, where you’re free to discover the wonders of island life before a boat takes you back to Morlaix, threading through the islands. What could be better?
Book your place for a unique day out.
