Saint-Mathieu lighthouse

Located in Plougonvelin, this lighthouse marks the westernmost point of mainland France. To reach the top, you'll need to climb 163 steps. Don't fancy that? No problem! You can admire the nearby 16th-century abbey, or pay your respects at the memorial to sailors lost at sea.


Brest has long been an important military port. This is where you'll find this beautiful lighthouse. It actually stands on an offshore islet, but you can cross the cobblestone bridge to reach it from the mainland. Even very young children can manage this short walk, and the whole family will enjoy the gorgeous views.

This is the most powerful lighthouse in France and has plenty to keep you entertained. As well as the lighthouse itself, Creac'h has a lighthouse museum. Here you can see how these iconic buildings have changed over the years, and inspire young minds with thrilling tales of sailors and engineers.

If you count the steps as you climb this lighthouse, you'll find there are exactly 365 - as many as the days in a year! This is the tallest freestone lighthouse in the world and gives some of the best views around. Most excitingly for kids, you can get there by boat, a journey that is sure to delight youngsters.


The lighthouse of Trézion is a fun one to climb, with 182 steps and great views at the top. From high up, you can see where the waters of the Atlantic meet the Channel; on a clear day, you might also be able to spot the Molène archipelago in the distance.
