From Goulphar to Bangor island. The Wild Coast is indented and the islands are numerous. Two mooring places: Goulphar and Kerel, are used by yachtsmen in summertime.

Goulphar is not considered as a beach, but Kerel is a very much appreciated bathing place because the water is often warmer than on other beaches (very low slope gradient of the beach, and well-sheltered site).

You will see many caves along the shore. The most famous is the Talut Cave which can be gone across at low tide.

A beautiful walk along the Wild Coast: from the Talut signal station to Porh Domois, to be performed in the morning to get the sun on the right side. When the sea is calm, Porh Domois is a remarkable place for snorkelling: there are many caves and passages under the rocks where you can swim.
