Locmariaquer is an authentic fishing village marking the entrance to the tumultuous waters of the Gulf of Morbihan, at the point of Kerpenhir.
With its narrow streets, old houses and picturesque harbor, the village has kept a charm of yesteryear where it is good to linger.
From the port, several shipping companies offer cruises on the Gulf of Morbihan, the islands of the Bay of Quiberon or the crossing to Port Navalo, located just opposite Locmariaquer, on the Rhuys peninsula.
Good visit !
