BREST BREAKS

Brest is the second-largest town in Brittany and is recognized in equal measure for its Breton character, scenery, craggy coastline, beautiful beaches, and delicious seafood. The town also has one of Europe’s best natural harbors and tremendous base for activity-based breaks.

The town of Brest is significantly positioned on the western portion of the Peninsula of Brittany. It sits on the northwestern part of France, specifically on the Bretagne region. The total population of Brest amounts up to 146, 000 as of the official survey in the early 2000s.

Despite the fact that the neighboring places of Saint-Nazaire and Nantes have bigger harbors and can therefore accommodate bigger sea vessels, Brest has a larger shipping industry. For the record, the port of Brest is considered the first to have made itself accessible from the American continents. The success of the town’s shipping industry can be attributed to its favorable, secluded geographical location.

The unsheltered moors are perfect for horse riding, mountain biking, fishing and more so for land surfing and kayaking. Golf enthusiasts can very well kickoff—and tee off!—on the Golf de Brest Iroisem with some 18 holes of smooth green amidst the rough Breton scenery.

Nevertheless, there are a number of remarkable landscapes that await the tourists just a good distance out of town. Travelers can freely feast their eyes on the wonderfully crafted landscapes, shimmering cliffs that are covered with granite stones, and magnificent grottoes. There are also beautiful sandy beaches where beach lovers can enjoy water sports like wind surfing and yachting.

Also found in the French town of Brest is Musee de la Tour Tanguy, which exhibits dioramas depicting the night prior to the eruption of the Second World War. The beautiful Oceanopolis marine center aquarium can be found in Brest too.

Generally, the French town of Brest isn’t as stunning as most French towns are.  Ironically, the ruins of the Castle and the Tour Tanguy has become a favorite attraction. The towns people have worked hard to renovate the structure after it was bombed by Britain and USA during the World War II.

Brest also hold a series of events in commemoration of the its rich maritime history. One major event is also held once every four years, and the townsfolk arranges and gathers in a huge ship. This joyous celebration is attended by locals and tourists alike. It can be said that this celebration is one of the most celebrated and the most attended gathering in the French town of Brest’s calendar.  The most recent celebration took place in 2004, thus making the next four years, which is 2008, the next big year.

Another important celebration in Brest is the annual celebration of Festival Européen du Film Court de Brest, which is a short term festival. In fact, the popular film Querelle, which was shown in 1982, took place in Brest.

When talks shift to sports, the town of Brest takes pride of its football heroes. The town is the home of the football team called Stade Brestois 29, which is part of Ligue 2, France’s second-highest football league.

While staying in Brest, you got to find time to dine at a highly recommended floating seafood restaurant in the Port du Moulin Blanc, Ma Petite Folie.

The restaurants in the town of Brest have a wide variety of seafood and shellfish to choose from. In fact, there are many food establishments that serve fish alone. In local and supermarkets, baskets of seafoods, fresh fish, and shellfish are sold.

In addition to seafoods, the town of Brest is famous for its delicious fruit crepes too. The Breton crepe, for example, is one of the town’s favorite delicacies. Also, there are a number of crepe restaurants that serve fruit crepes and Breton cider. Other Brest food favorites are the nutritious Brest-made milk, which is very in demand in Britanny, and the Trau Mad full fat butter biscuits.
