Details of Camping les Mouettes campsite are further down the page
Carantec is a small town in Morlaix Bayabout 10 kms south of Roscoff ferry port, with an out of season population of roughly 2724, though this swells dramatically when the camping and mobile home holiday season starts. The town and surrounding area rely on tourism, shell fishing, agriculture and horticulture.
Carantec has seven good Beaches, good parking with no parking charges (as yet), together with 18 kms of cliff walks. Immediately off Plage du Port, lies Callot Island, which is linked to the mainland at low tides via a tarmac causeway. The island which is 3kms long, has a number of houses and about nine sandy beaches.
At the far end of the Island is Notre Dame Church, which is still in use. Morlaix Bay has a number of Islands, one of which has an imposing 16th Century Chateau (open for visits from June 2006), several lighthouses and some of the islands have a few houses.
The nearby town of St Pol de Léon, a charming old town with lovely 17th century houses, a beautiful medieval cathedral and a bustling Tuesday market held in the central square is well worth taking time out from your camping holiday here to visit. For keen walkers there are many marked footpaths to explore this superb coastline with its glorious sandy beaches and rocky coves
