Cap Frehel

Typical coast around the Cap Fréhel

This rugged part of the coastline made of 230 feet high cliffs is now a protected natural area. This big Frehel Cape is made of pink sandstone and is covered with the typical heather and gorse local landscape. For the maritime traffic along the Emerald Coast, the point is crowned by two lighthouses, one of the 17th century and the other from the 20th. Sheltered in a protected corner, the medieval Fort La Latte castle is still privately owned but can be visited, after passing two draw bridges.
