There are 2 main marinas in this interesting boating area. The marinas are called the Marina du Chateau and the Moulin Blanc.

The city of Brest is large and has very good transport links including a rail station. The Chateau marina is ideally placed for linking to the train with the railway station only 15mins walk.

I plan to visit in late May 2019 so will provide more information and photos. So in May 2019 – I have split the 2 Brest marina pages so I can provide more specific information.

The Château Marina is located in the city centre and the Moulin Blanc is next to the beach but with good links to public transport and ideal for a technical stopover.

Marina du Chateau

This is the newer marina and is more to the west.

Located at the entrance of the Penfeld river, the Port du Château is a very nice and well-suited marina to accommodate all navigators profiles. Established near the commercial port and military port, this modern and dynamic harbour allows you to explore and enjoy all the charms of a maritime city par excellence.…

All of the tides in the area are based on the Brest tides.
