After ten minutes of crossing, it is on an archipelago punctuated by the tides that we experience. Here the luminous contrasts are particularly eloquent. Throughout the year, we witness the spectacle of nature in bloom: A real palette of colors. We also find on the island of many exotic species brought back from their expeditions by the Breton sailors: passiflores, jasmine, palm trees, fig trees… and even agaves.
By walk, by bike or on a wagon towed by a tractor, we wander through the alleys narrow streets of Bréhat to discover its small houses with small walled gardens. We leave the South Island, sweet and flowery, by taking the Pont ar Prat to reach the North Island, green and wild. There, the Blanche Tour which is use as a daymark for navigators, the semaphore and lighthouses of Rosédo and Pointe du Paon stand against the turquoise water.

GOLF DE DINARD
Dinard golf course, facing the sea, is a real institution with its 18 holes. This course is neither long, not tiring. So it may sound easy, but the final score reminds you of the reality. Because if it isn’t difficult, it is delicate: sandy soil, undulating fairways, small, raised and very fast, many bunkers, very few trees, but lots of broom and gorse. Dinard is also windy! By bicycle, it is almost always in front or in profile and it is much more difficult.
