Visit the islands and explore the Glénan
During the time of the boat crossing from Loctudy or Bénodet (between 1 h and 1h30), you will take a breath of fresh air before discovering the beauty of these small unspoilt islands.
The Vedettes de l'Odet company organises crossings every day during the summer season. Tickets can be purchased directly from Les Vedettes de l'Odet or from the Tourist Office.
The Isle of Sein is located west of the Pointe du Raz, on the water's edge and at the mercy of the Atlantic storms. With less than 200 inhabitants and without a car, you can visit it by taking the boat from Audierne for a 1 hour crossing with the company Pen Ar Bed.
The Isle of Groix is located opposite the harbour of Lorient in Morbihan, about 1h15 from the Hortensias campsite in Loctudy. This island is much larger, 8 km long by 4 km wide, and can easily be visited by day. The 45 min crossing is made from Lorient with the Compagnie Océane.
