You can buy topographic maps at the newsagents or in the supermarket in Lannilis.

TIDELAND-FISHING  
is called "pêche à pied" (pronounce paesch a pijee) and is very popular in our region. Armed with rakes, buckets and dip nets, you go hiking along the beaches at low tide to gather shrimps, shells, crabs and little fishes for a meal.

FISHING 
At the coast and in the Abers the opportunities for fishing are numerous. You don't need any permit for fishing here. The species found are carnivore fishes like sea bass, gilthead, codfish which you can catch with artificial baits or natural baits like rockworms or shell meat. You will also find scavengers like hogfishes and mullets.

In the upcountry, many lakes, canals and rivers invite you for fishing. Here you must buy a permit in a local tobacco-shop or newsagent. You do not need a fishing licence.

If you don't have a fishing rod, we can borrow you something.

WEEKLY MARKETS 
The weekly market in Lannilis will be every wednesday. In Plouguerneau (6km) every thursday, and in Lilia (10km) tuesday night (only in july and august). The colourful and vivid market life will ispire you with its amazing variety of fresh products and local specialities. In St. Renan (25km), every saturday the biggest weekly market of all Finistère takes place. It is worth a visit.


DELICACIES 
Discover the specialities of our region: Cheese for every taste, meat-pies, freshly harvested vegetables, meat from controlled biological cultivation and -last but not least- freshly caught fish and seafood. Discover Brittany culinarily: Benefit from the choice of the local producers and the weekly markets.
