There is a fee to climb the lighthouse at Cap Frehel, which I feel is not really worth it as the views of the cliffs from ground level are already spectacular. The lighthouse (and the old, smaller one right beside it) do serve as a...More

One of those places you have to say you have been to, if you are in the vicinity. Lighthouse of little interest. €3 to park - I bet the farmer can’t believe his luck.

Great place to visit and definitely worth paying the few euros to see this. The car park is very large and there are toilets right near the lighthouse. We visited this last week and it was unfortunate that the lighthouse was closed that day so...More

Made a brief visit when motoring around this pleasant peninsula. The views from the surrounding footpaths are good and a place to blow the cobwebs away. There is a €5 charge to park.

Cap Frehel lighthouse is a historical place to visit. One can walk over 100 yards out along the point. The views are stupendous. The most magical time is to go in the evening - bring a little picnic and sit and watch the sun go...More

Gorgeous views of the Brittany coast. Easy, plentiful parking and clean toilets. Great place to take a small hike down to the edge and take in the enormous coastline.

There are 2 lighthouses at Cap Frehel, but only the modern one is still in use and the roof can be access (at cost).

For the lighthouse you have to pay entrace if you want to go inside, what we did not do. However the location and nature around it is worth a small visit.

We never went up the lighthouse as there was a charge to park, then another charge to go up the lighthouse! Why do some places spoil themselves with excessive charges? During our visit to France there were very few places we had to pay for...More
