Our opinion on the Biological Station Cove

Adresse of the Biological Station Cove : Place Georges Teissier 29680 Roscoff

Small in size but big in the shelter she offers, this cove of the biological station of Roscoff is ideally protected from westerly, southerly and northern winds, at least on its dry portion at high tide. The dyke that surrounds it even restores pleasantly the sun accumulated during the day. Located between the CNRS biological station and the former marine aquarium (also become a dependency of the CNRS), the beach is at the end of the old town and so close to all amentities. At high tide, elle est prisée des connaisseurs.

Beach downtown - Roscoff

Pleasantly protected from the prevailing winds, this small beach of downtown is popular at high tide. Although located in the city center, the rocks that emerge everywhere give it a little wild side.

At low tide, the space gets bigger but its charm drops. On the other side of the channel, the island of Batz which can be accessed from the nearby port.
