|The Quiberon peninsula in Brittany makes a beautiful destination for a holiday surrounded by the sea on all sides. This nine-mile long peninsula stretches out into the Atlantic Ocean and is perfect for swimming, relaxing and exploring thanks to its combination of sheltered beaches and wild coastline. Situated right at the tip of the peninsula just 10 metres from the beach, Siblu’s Le Conguel holiday park is the ideal campsite for discovering the best of Quiberon.|

Nature and the wild coast
Quiberon’s western coastline is known as the ‘Wild Coast’ and, as the name suggests, it is not the place to go if you want a relaxing swim. However, it is definitely worth exploring either on foot or by bike for its stunning scenery and natural diversity. This is an awe-inspiring area of dunes, caves and beautiful flora and fauna. If you keep your eyes peeled you might notice some of relics from Quiberon’s past: these include the ancient standing stone at Beg-er-Goalennec and the impressive Château Turpault. You will also pass a range of charming fishing villages, a reminder of Quiberon’s famous sardines! Whether you are on a bike or on foot, make sure you take some time to stop and admire the stunning views, particularly from Pointe de Percho, Pont-Blanc and Port Rhu.
Food & drink
The Brittany region is famous for its cuisine and Quiberon is no exception. Of course the fresh sardines are unmissable, but you also need to make sure to try some of the local sweet treats. For example, the Maison d’Armorine is a famously family-run sweet shop business which boasts the award for the ‘best sweets in France’. They are called ‘Niniches’, are made of Guérande salt and butter and come in a variety of flavours. To continue the delicious journey, visit the ‘Les confitures de la Cour d’Orgères’, a gourmet jam shop with over 70 flavours.
Whatever your criteria when it comes to beaches, Quiberon is sure to have something that will tick the box. There are an amazing range of different beaches on all sides of the peninsula. If you’re a fan of surfing, kite surfing or sand yachting, you will be pleased to know that Quiberon is a hot spot for water sports, particularly on the northern beaches such as Penthièvre. However families or anyone looking for a calmer, more sheltered beach should head for the southern beaches near the Saint-Pierre-Quiberon area or the area around Le Conguel holiday park. Some good lifeguard-supervised beaches include Porigo beach, Fort Neuf beach and Le Conguel beach (just a few minutes walk away from the campsite).
There are many great options for day trips from Quiberon, not least to the range of beautiful islands in the Quiberon Bay area. Just 15 km offshore is Belle-Ile-en-Mer, known for its beautiful landscapes, stunning beaches and picturesque towns (and for its summer opera festival too). Hop on the ferry shuttle (you can find the details of the crossings on the ‘Compagnie Océane’ website. and spend a happy day exploring this seaside paradise! You can also visit Hoedic and Houat, the smaller neighbouring islands.
