Introduction

On the water 2km south of Crozon, Morgat was built as a summer resort in the 1930s by the Peugeot brothers (of motor-vehicle fame), and it retains something of a period feel. It's one of the prettier resorts in this part of Brittany, with colourful houses piled up at one end of a long sandy beach – La Plage de Morgat – that has very safe bathing.
