There is a nice lighthouse done in 1856 and the marina was done from 1968; with work still ongoing to enlarge it, The lighthouses are always a pretty sight, and the bigger one from 1856 or phare de Port Haliguen can be seen for 10 miles with a height of 12 meters and no more in operation. Two smaller red phares or lighthouses are on the causeway out to see; the one on the left has 11 miles vision at 8 meters high; the one on the right has 8 miles vision of a high of 7 meters. On the north dam, there is another lighthouse,this one green with a vision of 6 miles and  9 meters high.

A very busy stopover because it is ideally located at the entrance to the bay of Quiberon, Port-Haliguen is only 5 km from La Teignouse, 19 km from Belle-Ile, 15 km from Crouesty, and 11 km from La Trinité sur Mer. On foot, the center of Quiberon and all its shops are a ten-minute walk away. Today the two new basins reclaimed from the sea, make Port Haliguen a major stopover for yachting in Morbihan.  The work ongoing includes the following : entrance to the West basin will be enlarged to make it easier to enter the marina and boat berths will be made larger. Access to the marina and its activities will be resized and parking spaces optimized so that there will be additional parking. The shops and services closest to the old harbour will be given a real architectural identity. The approach to Port Haliguen and the square will be redeveloped to make the site more convivial. There will be a pleasant walk along the quays. The quayside areas will be extended and walkers will enjoy a dedicated open space where they can look out to sea and watch boats.

You find all kinds of boats here from cruisers to dingy zodiac types, from motor to sails, combine, and catamarans. It is really a gorgeous spot to be in. We parked behind the Port Haliguen hotel right facing the harbor on a side street for free! Plenty of this type of parking if you come early. The hotel not stayed obviously but has very good reputation, I leave you with its webpage : https://en.hotel-port-haliguen.com/
