Enjoy Bangor by day

Bangor and its wild coastline offer a multitude of outdoor activities, along the ocean or inland! Hiking, short walks or bike rides, trail courses, and beautiful hidden beaches with crystal clear waters…. The heart of the village of Bangor with its terraces and its large Sunday market which gives pride of place to local producers will also allow you to spend a moment of relaxation and conviviality! Whatever your desires, here are all our advices to spend an unforgettable day in Bangor. And let’s take care of Belle-Ile with our friends’ eco-advice.

Fill up on nature!

The Stang Per valley, a quiet walk, in the heart of the island

To discover a preserved nature

Nothing better, on a beautiful sunny day, than to stretch your legs in the middle of nature! Set off to discover the Vallon du Stang Per for a nice walk off the beaten track. This valley, one of the longest and most wooded of the island, reveals a wash house, a small bridge, majestic tree trunks sculpted by nature. The flora is rich and green: heather, gorse, chestnut trees, willows, moors, marshes and dunes…

The highlight of the show: the route ends on the beach of Kérel, one of the most beautiful of the wild coast. Depending on the weather, it is the ideal setting either for a swimming break or for a picnic facing the Ocean…

Bike rides, another way

to discover the monuments and natural sites of the wild coast

Saddle up! Starting from Bangor, there are many cycling routes, far from the traffic, that will allow you to make a foray into the heart of the villages and hamlets of the island. It is also an opportunity to discover the two unmissable sites of this wild part of the island:

The Grand Phare, one of the most powerful lighthouses in Europe, and in the immediate vicinity, the Aiguilles de Port Coton, the jagged cliffs that were made famous by Claude Monet.

Cycling is also a good way to reach, via dirt roads or agricultural paths, the most beautiful beaches of the wild coast: Baluden, Herlin or even Donnant, one of the best Breton surf spots.

While bike rental companies are present on the 4 communes of the island,in Bangor there is only one and it’s Number 1!


Moments of sharing and conviviality!

Decks, bookstore, concert and market

Sitting in Bangor

Would you like to take your time and stroll on a terrace? Bangor, its terraces and restaurants located in the town will allow you to enjoy a quiet moment. The literary café, the nightlight presents the latest literary novelties. The library’s youth and regional sections are particularly well-stocked. On nice days, musicians sometimes come to play on the terrace of the establishment.

Good to know! If you come to Bangor on Sunday mornings, you can enjoy one of the largest markets on Belle-Île. Most of the local producers are present: a roaster, two manufacturers of Breton cookies and cakes, two cheese makers (goat and cow), an organic market gardener, an oyster seller, and a fisherman selling the fish caught the same day, (depending on arrivals). Local craftsmen and artists complete the picture for a real moment of sharing and conviviality!

If you prefer to eat under the table, Bangor has some of the best restaurants on the island… Galettes = Chez Renée, Café Coton, on the go la Veilleuse and Le Cabestan, for the gourmet Marie-Galante, La Désirade, Café Clare (lunch) or 180° (evening).
