Audierne, at the mouth of the Goyen river, is a picturesque town built on different levels rising up from the river. Its maritime history is evidenced in the imagery of boats and fish sculpted into some of the region's religious buildings. Beautiful Audierne is one of the most westerly coastal towns in the département of Finistère, surely the reason why the presence of the sea is so powerful and so invigorating.

It is here the Goyen river finishes its overland journey and joins the tumultuous ocean. This privileged estuary location enables the town to offer amateur yachters and fishermen a broad sheltered harbour, full of charm and authenticity. A stroll along the quayside is a must to experience the ever-bustling fishing and yachting harbour. Such a wander is probably the best way to see Audierne. There are many shops spread out along the Jean Jadé quay, and also many restaurants offering gastronomic specialities.

Manu Brisq avenue, which stretches the length of the beautiful fine sandy beach of Trescadec, offers a great many restaurants, a nightclub and cafés. Also in the area: a lot of chapels, la unmissable Pointe du Raz, probably the most famous cape of Finistère and known for its wild grandeur, the Bay 'des Trépassés' between la Pointe du Raz and la Pointe du Van.

It is also a delight to discover the tiny harbours nestling here and there between the cliffs. Saint-Tugen is one of Cap Sizun's most beautiful beaches and a meeting place for surfers. Another must is the ferry to the island of Sein, due west, for a day's exploration of this wonderful little island at the end of the earth.
