Northern Brittany, named “the Emerald coast” due to the bright colour of its sea, is famous for its marvellous coastal views from its steeped rocky cliffs and its delightful beaches.
The North in particular is popular amongst the golfing world as the golf courses compliment and utilise the beautiful coastal landscape. The quaint villages situated in the North offer fresh local seafood, a warm welcome and easy access from the UK, making Brittany a highly sought after destination. The coastline pleases both photographers, water sports enthusiasts and bird watchers alike with the quality of water sports available and varied seabird species found in the region. The splendid golf courses and the heart of golf tourism centres around the villages of Saint Malo, an old historic fortress town, and Dinard, a rich city reminscent of the 19th cenury, two unique seaside towns, where the coastal courses are some of the most untouched in France.
