About us

A remarkable circuit at the head of the bay, with views over Douarnenez and Cap de la Chèvre on the Crozon peninsula. Along the GR 34, you'll discover the dunes of Sainte-Anne-la-Palud and its chapel, where the annual pardon in honor of Saint Anne (the patron saint of Brittany!) is held in August. Continue along a narrow path back to the Tréfeuntec parking lot, where you'll find the monument to aviator Jean-Marie Le Bris. In the late 1850s, Le Bris built a glider with movable wings known as a "winged boat". After crossing the hamlet of Tréfeuntec, then the village of Kergoasguen, you follow the coastal path and its jagged cliffs. The view is superb!

We love it!
- the path through the dunes and the distinctive scent of the flora
- the breathtaking view from the tip of Beg an Ty Garde
- the heritage features: discover the chapel of Sainte-Anne-la-Palud, catch a glimpse of the manor house of Roz Trefeuntec
- the variety of the route and landscapes, between the gentle dunes and the steeper cliffs...
You can also... do it in 2 parts! (the circuit comprises 2 loops) ... And stop off at one of the seaside restaurants for a delicious meal!

Here are your points of reference for following this itinerary:
- Start at the parking lot in the Tréfeuntec cove, Plonévez-Porzay
- Take the GR ® 34 to the right along the beach (do not take the path along the coast!) ; at high tide, take the PR route around the hamlet of Camézen to the Hôtel de la Plage
- Follow the markings in the dunes to the Tréguer Vihan parking lot
- Walk along the upper part of the dunes for 800 m
- Via the grassy part, join the chapel of Sainte-Anne-la-Palud
- Return to the ocean by turning right, along the "Hent santez Annaé" path
- Return to the starting point via the beach
- Route de Kervel > right as you climb
- Hameau de Tréfeuntec
- Before the hamlet of Kergoasguen > right > grassy path through cultivated fields
- Return via the GR 34 : magnificent scenery and viewpoints overlooking the cliffs, passing the pointe de Beg an Ty Garde

Depart from the parking lot in the Tréfeuntec cove. Take the GR 34 on your right, on the beach side, towards the Hôtel de la Plage.

Anse de Tréfeuntec

In the Tréfeuntec parking lot, the Jean-Marie Le Bris stele invites you to a first stop. It was here, in Tréfeuntec, that the first flight of the winged boat took place, a glider with movable wings inspired by seabirds, created and piloted by Jean-Marie Le Bris around 1850.

Monument in memory of Jean-Marie Le Bris

As you walk along the beach, you'll discover the magnificent protected dune area! Please respect nature by staying on the path...

Dunes of Sainte Anne La Palud

Chapelle Sainte-Anne-La-Palud, a place of pilgrimage on the last weekend of August in honor of Saint Anne.

Chapelle Ste Anne La Palud

This stage is not on the circuit, but is well worth a detour. Below the road, opposite the chapel on the right-hand side, stands a monumental fountain again dedicated to Saint Anne. Legend has it that, like Saint Yves, she cures all ills, especially rheumatism.

You're sure to love this coastal path (part of the GR34) from the village of Tréfeuntec to the Pointe de Tréfeuntec, offering magnificent views over the Bay of Douarnenez and surrounding beaches.

This atypical and original modern-style building dating from the 1970s (the only manor house of its type in Brittany) leaves no one indifferent. After a thirty-year legal battle between heirs, it was acquired by the Département in 2016.
