In the summer, it is wiser to leave your car behind when you set off to explore the Quiberon peninsula.
Cycling is the best way to travel, especially as there are plenty of cycle paths and quiet roads (except perhaps when you cycle through Plouharnel and Penthièvre).
We suggest the following itinerary for exploring the peninsula starting at the southern tip of Quiberon, la Pointe du Conguel:
(1) Follow the coastal path alongside Porigo beach, the old harbour and Place de Port-Haliguen
(2) Take the Quai des Sinagots. Before the jetty, take the steps on your left towards Rue Surcouf to rue du Mané. Turn right towards la Colonie du Mané, continue along Bellevue.
(3) Turn right into rue des Galets then left into rue Er-Vadjuner. Cross boulevard du Castéro, take the path opposite, and go towards avenue des Druides and continue to your right towards la rue des Goélettes.
(4) Turn right towards Saint-Julien chapel, follow rue de la Pettite-Côte to the sea. Cycle along the coast.
(5) When you have passed Camping Beauséjour, turn left at chemin de la Vierge. Take rue de la Vierge, follow the D768, cross the level crossing, turn right into chemin du Manio and continue to Kerniscob. At the top of Allée de la de la Pompe, turn left then 100 m further along, turn left again.
(6) Take Allée du Sémaphore, turn right onto route de Kerné. Turn right towards Kerné, then cross the village towards camping de Kerné.
(7) On your left, from the campsite entrance, cycle along the path to Manémeur.
(8) Before you reach the village, turn right. Go to Beg-er-Lan roundabout.
(9) Follow the coast to the harbour and embarcation point. Continue to place Hoche along the Promenade de la Plage.
A tip : you can take your bike with you on the TER train which links Auray to Quiberon (called le Tire-Bouchon).
