- The harbour, with lots of fishing boats, including seaweed harvesters (look for a long pole on the deck, which they twist the seaweed up with).
- Saint Barbara's Chapel (chapelle sainte Barbe): Dating from 1619, it offers excellent views over the town of Roscoff and especially the whole Bay of Morlaix. There are guided tours from spring to autumn.
- The church of Notre Dame de Croaz Batz: Built in the 16th century
- For an outing you can catch a boat across to the Isle de Batz (pronounced 'eel de bah') this is only a short distance across the bay.
ThalassotherapyAs Brittany is the cradle of French thalassotherapy, it is not surprising for a seaside city like Roscoff to offer such oceanic spa facilities. Relaxation, treatments for backache, and mother/baby remedies are on offer.
