On arriving in Quiberon, you reach the ferry terminal by following the "Embarcadère Belle-Ile-en-Mer" / "Port Maria" road signs. Don't forget that Wednesdays and Saturdays are market days in Quiberon. The boarding car park, located in front of the terminal, is exclusively reserved for vehicles arriving for immediate boarding (45 minutes before departure).

A few recommendations:

- During busy periods (weekends, school holidays, summer period), the traffic is often dense on the peninsula. Thursdays in Saint-Pierre-Quiberon and Saturdays in Quiberon are market days. To avoid traffic jams, we recommend that you arrive early and leave late. If you arrive early to take your boat, take the opportunity to follow the road or the coastal path and discover the wild coast of Quiberon!
