Camping around the Bay of Morlaix, Brittany
Peninsula and seaside resort Carantec was a popular destination among the more affluent tourists a century ago. Nowadays it is still a popular place for holiday makers.
The Bay of Morlaix is surrounded by beautiful beaches and rocky shores. It is partly a nature reserve, including a bird sanctuary.
There are several beautiful islands in the bay, of which the island of Callot is the best known and largest (at low tide you can go there by road from Carantec). And in the middle of the bay you will find the Château du Taureau , an impressive fortress that almost completely occupies the island.

If you prefer not to do all of that, check out Mer et Yourtes , a small campsite where you can indeed rent yurt tents.
