Drive from Brest to La Pointe St Mathieu in the far west of Brittany. Overlooking an extremely important, strategic stretch of coast connecting the Atlantic to the Bay of Brest, Pointe St-Mathieu is all about dramatic views and is home to a clutch of dramatic and very beautiful buildings. This is the westernmost point of mainland France.

An important historic landmark, the lighthouse at Pointe Saint-Mathieu is a highly symbolic monument for sailors of Brittany and around the globe.

Enjoy a taste of Brittany in the local Biscuiterie. This is where the utterly delicious Breton butter cookies are produced, along with a wide range of marine products, taking advantage of Brittany's proximity to, and relationship with, the sea.

Return to the pier at Brest.
