Access by sea and by land
A crossroads of sea and land routes
The Port of Roscoff infrastructures are of very high quality. Access for disabled persons has been particularly well thought out. Perhaps you've come from afar? You're stopping off and wish to explore the continent or the Bay of Morlaix? Well that's no problem. In fact it's quite simple!
Access by sea
Conveniently situated between Aber Wrach and Trebeurden, Roscoff Marina is the perfect place to stop while waiting for a tide. It's a stop-over port for yachts sailing through the Channel, whether heading towards Great Britain, Ireland, Belgium, the Netherlands... or going south, and soon to be facing the difficulties of the Iroise Sea. It is also a good place to stay for a bit, and enjoy the wonderful scenery surrounding the Bay of Morlaix, both on land and out to sea.
