“Day trip to Ile de Batz”
Review of Ile de Batz

Ile de Batz
Ranked #1 of 17 things to do in Roscoff
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Just 15 minutes boat ride from Roscoff (8 euro adult return), Ile de Batz is a carless (as in no cars!) haven of abundant hortensia, stone cottages, boats bobbing in crystal clear water and great views in all directions. You can stay close to the boat landing and swim off the beach or seek out your own private corner far from the maddening....oops, getting carried away there.....it's calm, if the weather is nice it beats the cote d'azur, and there were several little places still available for rent (late july!). restaurants serve simple food (crepes, moules frites). If you don't bring a picnic they are very affordable, but there is one 'supermarche' where you can get the essentials i.e. bread, cheese, wine...Well worth a visit for a lazy day off the mainland.

We took a chance on the weather and visited anyway on bikes on a showery day. Lovely beaches and scenery. Had a good pizza in the only pizzeria on the island. Ferry takes 10-15 mins, 8 euros pp & per bike. A good visit, would recommend.

not many people stop at roscoff long enough to visit this lovely island , it's a microclimate and hosts a flora not found on the mainland , there is a free campsite , and the coastline is stunning , one can wander round the labyrinth of footpaths for hours, its well worth a day out , sadly lacking in choice for restaurants , either creperie or really expensive .

We walked around the entire island and had a lovely drink at the creperie by the light house. The gardens are also worth a visit. Nice day out, but not any good places to eat on the island.
