The sweet fishing town Camaret sur Mer is situated in the very Northwest of France, at the Avant-Goulet de Brest in beautiful and wild Brittany.
Coming from sea by sailboat, its two marinas are a great alternative to the marinas in the city of Brest. They provide great shelter and Port Vauban is accessible at any tide. It is a great starting point for crossing the Bay of Biscay.
Camaret’s exposed location at the end of Crozon Peninsula has been of great military relevance for many centuries to defend the Goulet de Brest, the entrance to France largest naval base. So you will find remains of fortifications, batteries and bomb craters from a range of eras.
