The bay of Saint-Brieuc is first and foremost a vast coastal space of cliffs, inlets, dunes, promontories and beaches (fifteen in all). The chemin des douaniers (the “customs path”), a communicating pathway running along the coast of Brittany, once used by customs officials and coast guards, is today open to hikers allowing the visitor to find all the best views of the bay.
The largest natural reserve in Brittany is a paradise for bird watchers. Split between two geographical indentations (the anse d’Yffiniac and the anse de Morieux) which form an internationally known wetland area classified as a natural reserve in 1998, the bay protects a fauna and flora which flourish without encroachment. A migratory crossroads, certain birds stop over here while others have elected to make their nests. Along the wandering pathways of the bay, and according to the time of year there may be up to 40,000 birds of 112 species to be seen.
