The Port d'ERQUY
The port of Erquy, with its wonderfully clear waters, is pressed compactly under the cape's western cliffs. The fishing fleet is renowned for its scallop gathering in the bay of Saint-Brieuc, although the practice is stictly limit cleared to specific times in winter only. Virtually all the portside houses have been turned into enticing bars or boutiques.
There's also a Maison de la Mer , offering all manner of water sports.
The striking purple-stones Cap d'Erquy, headland marks the eastern end of the huge, magnificent bay of Saint-Brieuc. Tucked into the cliffside below it you'll find the very charming port of Erquy, reputed for its scallops, while the relaxing beaches of the resort stretch out along the bay beyond.
The resort is relatively recent, but a core of pretty old houses stands around the purple stones, central church. There are good fish shops nearby, special significance to the Erquy fishing community.
