Erquy is a commune in the Côtes-d'Armor department of Brittany in northwestern France.
Erquy is located in a cove of the Penthièvre coast bordered by cape Erquy on one side and a volcanic rock formation called pointe de la Heussaye on the other.
Erquy harbour shelters a flotilla of about 80 trawlers and the town is known as the scallop "capital". The shellfish are collected in the Saint-Brieuc bay.
With its ten fine sand beaches and lovely pink sandstone houses, Erquy is a popular summer tourist destination.
It is also to note that Erquy claims to be the inspiration behind the village for the Asterix comics as it is also in Armorica which is modern day Brittany in France.
