Douarnenez

Douarnenez is a quaint old fishing town of quayside paths and zigzagging narrow streets. Boats come in from the Atlantic to unload their catches of mackerel, sardines, and tuna. Just offshore is the Ile Tristan, accessible on foot at low tide (guided tours only, organized by the tourist office, €6), and across the Port-Rhu channel is Tréboul, a seaside resort town favored by French families.
