The tip of the Raz

A very nice hike to the Pointe du Raz to the Bay of the Trépassés.

The visit of the La pointe (the tip) of Raz is pretty disappointing. A lot of works have been done a few years ago to preserve the site from the tourists , these constructions are not really well designed. The site has lost much of its magic. It's better to stay on the coastal path which remains close to the cliffs rather than stay on the direct path to the tip. You can then continue on the coastal trail and head towards the Bay of the Trépassés (deceased). The landscapes are so much more beautiful and more grandiose. Be careful of the weather conditions the winds that can be strong in the region.
