The Saint Pabu Plage campsite is 17 km away from Cap Fréhel. With steep pink sandstone cliffs towering at over 70 metres, Cap Fréhel is the region's most impressive site. The headland separates the bays of St Brieuc and St Malo. It provides a panorama from Bréhat to the Channel Islands with 400 hectares of some of the biggest heathland in Europe. The image of boats passing through the buoys at Cap Fréhel, at the start of the Route du Rhum race, has been seen on television screens the world over. The Cap is a legendary site!
The cliffs and heathland stretching over 400 hectares contain a reserve for marine birds, including the rare razorbill. Follow the coastal path for a walk lasting an hour and a half. It will take you to Fort Lalatte, an impressive castle in the sea. This sublime historic monument is very well maintained, like a pink sandstone vessel standing on a rocky headland. Cross the drawbridge and enter the castle's interior between the moat and the keep. Cap Fréhel could only have such a remarkable edifice for a neighbour.
