When to go to Côtes-D'Armor?

When to visit the Côtes-d'Armor? The Côtes-d'Armor can be visited all year round! In July and August, the coastline was stormed. You can sail, surf, swim or simply relax. Hikers are also numerous on the GR34 and the Breton islands are filled with summer visitors. April-June and September are often pleasant and less crowded. This is the best time to go there. Of course, those who wish to swim will aim for the beginning of September, when the water is still a little warm. Walkers and sailors will take advantage of these calmer months to enjoy the Breton countryside. From October to March, it is generally quite bad, even if the temperatures remain mild. December and January are often rainy months. But in Brittany, nothing prevents you from going for a walk: a good raincoat, boots, and you are ready!
