Welcome to Quiberon
Quiberon (Kiberen in Breton) sits right at the southern tip of a thin, 14km-long peninsula, called the Presqu'île de Quiberon, flanked on the western side by the rocky, sublime and wave-lashed Côte Sauvage (Wild Coast). A thin ribbon of isthmus – l'isthme de Penthièvre – links the peninsula to the mainland. The setting is superb, with a heady mix of lovely rock-strewn beaches and dramatic, rugged inlets; the town of Quiberon is also pleasant, but finding a parking spot in the high season can be trying. Even so, it's wildly popular in summer and is also the departure point for ferries to Belle Île. For outdoorsy types, there are plenty of water sports available, from diving and snorkelling to sea kayaking, surfing and char à voile (sand yachting). The highlight is, however, driving down the Route Côtière (D186A) along the Côte Sauvage, stopping off at the various beaches.
