This independent walking holiday heads west from Roscoff along the first part of the coast of Legends in Brittany. This beautiful stretch of coast has a thousand different faces, including dramatic cliffs, beautiful beaches, sand dunes and and long estuaries or Abers. There are a number of small resorts and villages, inbetween which are long stretches of wild and unspoilt coast. One of the most striking features of this section of Brittany coast is the multitude of tiny islands and rocky promontories which make this coast so difficult to navigate, making it a place of numerous shipwrecks and legends.
