As if suspended between land and sea, the rocky promontory of Cap Fréhel rises to an altitude of 70 m, offering exceptional panoramic views over the Bay of Saint-Brieuc to the west and the Bay of Saint-Malo to the east. A natural site to discover on foot or by bike, and not to be missed during your stay at the Hôtel de Diane in Les Sables d'Or! Cap Fréhel is emblematic of northern Brittany and one of its most famous natural tourist sites. No wonder. In the sunshine, the pink sandstone cliffs of Cap Fréhel lend an inimitable, magical charm to the area. A fitting reward for brave hikers who arrive on the GR 34 trail. Fréhel is also one of Brittany's most important ornithological nature reserves, and as such is a delight for all bird lovers.
Among the wild heather and gorse, walkers approaching Cap Fréhel will soon spot the distinctive silhouette of its lighthouse, rebuilt after its destruction during the Second World War and now a listed historic monument. When you reach the top of the promontory, you may even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Channel Islands on a clear day.
Continue your visit to Fort La Latte, whose history will take you back in time to French history and cinema. Follow the bay of La Fresnaye to discover the wild beach (Château Seurin) and the authentic little marina of St Géran.
Just a few kilometers away, you'll discover the charm of Cap d'Erquy and its wild Portuais and Lourtuais beaches. From the Lacs Bleus promenade, you can walk down to the port of Erquy and discover its famous fish auction (particularly for scallops).
Head back towards the Bay of Saint Brieuc and you'll appreciate the pink sandstone Château de Bienassis and the long beaches of Caroual and St Pabu, all the way to the magnificent Golf de Pléneuf-Val André overlooking the sea.
Travelers looking for a restaurant in Frehel can discover Diane's Table. They'll enjoy tasty local cuisine, ideal for a moment of conviviality after a long walk.
