Discovering the Minou Lighthouse
Discover the region's emblematic lighthouse
Take the road to the Pointe du Minou to discover its lighthouse! Commissioned in 1848, the Minou Lighthouse was built to secure access to the Brest harbour.
26 metres high, the lighthouse and its lights have a range of 35 kilometres.
Now automated, the lighthouse is still one of the places not to be missed during a stay in Brest: nestled on a cliff, the lighthouse offers a magnificent view of the entrance to the Brest harbour and the sea.
Want to know all the secrets of the Minou Lighthouse? Guided tours are organised during the summer period (July and August). This tour lasts about twenty minutes and exceptionally opens the doors of the lighthouse to the curious.
Extend your visit by going to the beach next to the lighthouse: you will discover a pretty cove of fine sand. It is one of the favourite spots for surfers in the region thanks to its beautiful waves. You can walk around, sit on the sand and watch the surfers at work or, if the season allows, take a dip in the water. Please note! The beach is not supervised.
For hiking enthusiasts, the GR34 trail passes near the lighthouse: the ideal opportunity to walk along the coast and enjoy the exceptional landscape of the region.
Practical information :
- Address : Phare du Minou, 29280 Plouzané
- Parking: 400 metres from the lighthouse
