Sailing and walking in Morgat and the Crozon Peninsula
Morgat is a great stopover, on the south side of the Crozon Peninsular. It's a lively town with lots of nice restaurants and bars all set round an enormous sandy beach.
The marina has a shoal bank extending northwards from the end of the breakwater. The deepest approach is from the north, through or close too, a number of small craft mooring buoys.
The entrance to the marina is marked by a red and green post. The visitors pontoon is straight ahead as you enter the marina. There are some finger berths for smaller yachts at the far end. Sometimes the east side of the pontoon (closest to the fuel berth) seems to be reserved for groups and regattas, so if there’s a choice, moor on the west side to avoid being moved later.
The washroom facilities are reasonable, clean and well looked after. Showers are €2, tokens are available to buy with a credit or debit card, from a machine in the laundry. The code for the facilities is on the receipt from the token machine.
There’s a good supermarket (Super U) in town, behind the church, only a 15 minute walk from the marina. There’s a small Chandlery in the same area.
If you want some exercise away from the boat, the walking, on the GR34 coastal footpath, is excellent. The walk to the tiny cove at L’ile Vierge (south of Morgat) is well worth it, although the path is very steep in places.
There’s also a small sandy “swimming beach” across the marina carpark, on the outside of the breakwater. The swimming area is marked by small yellow buoys.
