Nature and Gardens
L'Île de Batz (‘Enez Vaz’ in Breton) is a small island off the coast of Roscoff offering visitors a complete change of scene. The north is wild moorland, while the south side, protected from the weather, is full of brightly coloured gardens. The 10 km coastal path is easily walkable, and regular ferries make the crossing from Roscoff every day of the year.
Le Jardin Georges Delaselle at the eastern end of the island is noteworthy for its rich collection of exotic plants as well as a Bronze Age necropolis and a 17th-century calvary.
Le Jardin Exotique et Botanique de Roscoff. Roscoff’s Exotic and Botanic Garden, now covers 1.6 hectares and is home to a collection of more than 3,500 species of subtropical and southern-hemisphere plants. It is dominated by an 18m-high rock whose summit provides a superb panoramic view of Roscoff’s new marina and the Bay of Morlaix.
