“An excellent place to visit”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

The short boat ride from Roscoff is well worth the price (8.50 euro per adult) at the time of writing. The island has several scenic bays a nice little town and several cafes and restaurants. You may want to rent a gite; there are several to choose from.

I climbed the lighthouse and enjoyed the view immensely. We also visited the exotic gardens at the east end of the island.

There is no fee for the island itself, just the ferry and some individual attractions on the island.

“Nice place, service some restaurant to be highly improved!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We rented bikes which is an absolute must there. In one creperie there, service was worse than poor, they do not care about tourists.

“Well worth the short trip”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

If you're in Roscoff, it's a must to take the 15 minute boat ride to the Ile de Batz. It's a lovely, gentle walk around the island. Climb the lighthouse for great views of the harbor and the bay; but hold on to your hat as it gets very windy.

“Lovely Island but lots of tractors and Quadbikes”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Very much like dthis island, the ferry trip to the island was lovely, great views. The only downside was that there was a lot of traffic, mainly tractors and quad bikes, who drove at high speed through the narrow streets and lanes, which meant you had to jump aside all the time, This made walking not very relaxing, especially with young children and a dog. The locals didn't seem too fond of tourists either. The island is agricultiral and very picturesque. Lovely beaches and harbour. Nice to have been there and to have seen it.

“Ile de Batz - not to be missed!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Wonderful place to stay and/or visit on the boat from Roscoff.

The south side of the island can be busy in peak season but just follow the coast path and the coastal scenery and flowers are wonderful.

Cycles are available for hire at the disembarkation point on the island.
