    Travel time from Crozon: approx 0.5 hrs

    Set on a sheltered section of the picturesque Crozon peninsula, the wide golden sand Plage de Morgat is one of the finest in Finistère. The beach is backed by the popular little holiday town of the same name. Once a sardine port, the village of Morgat grew into an elegant seaside resort over the 19th century and many fine beachfront buildings still exist from this period.

    Quite possibly the most stunning beach in Brittany, if not France, Plage de L'ile Vierge was once voted the "7th Most Beautiful beach in Europe". Set on the sheltered eastern side of Brittany's Crozon Peninsula the beach here is mostly pebbles backed by high white cliffs to which pine trees cling. The water here is a crystal clear turquoise - unfortunately it's about as cold as it looks! This… read more »

    This sandy, Atlantic facing beach sits on the Crozon Peninsula barely a kilometer away from the Plage de L'ile Vierge on the opposite coast, yet the beaches could hardly be more different. You won't find any shelter from the ocean swells here and there are no trees to the back of the beach, just windswept dunes and heather strewn cliffs.

    Lostmarc'h is well known as a surf spot, picking up… read more »

  • 4. Plage de Pen Hat

    Plage de Pen Hat

    Travel time from Crozon: approx 0.5 hrs

    The beach of Pen Hat is one of the most exposed on the Crozon Peninsula. Facing directly into the full force of the Atlantic Ocean the rolling waves can be very impressive. Whilst this is often great news for the surfers it adds to the beaches already dangerous reputation for swimming. In fact bathing here is prohibited due to the presence of what are locally referred to as "baïnes" - these… read more »

    Travel time from Crozon: approx 0.5 hrs

    Loved by those seeking out the wilder reaches of France's Atlantic coast, Plage de la Palue lies on the western side of Brittany's Crozon Peninsula, close to its southernmost point of Cape de la Chèvre. Its wide expanse of yellow sand provides a powerful contrast to the crisp blues of the Atlantic, and the low cliffs that book end either side of the beach and create an atmosphere of seclusion.

    Travel time from Crozon: approx 0.5 hrs

    The beautiful unspoilt beach of Baie de Trépassés is tucked away behind the rugged Pointe du Raz, France's most westerly point. These jagged 70 metre cliffs not only provide a stunning backdrop but help protect the beach from the south-westerly winds. However, there is no getting away from the fact this is an exposed beach which often faces the full wrath of the Atlantic Ocean. The wide sandy beach is flanked by… read more »

    Travel time from Crozon: approx 0.5 hrs

    Almost hidden below rugged cliffs covered in verdant grasses and wildflowers, the light-coloured sands of Plage de Pors Péron are situated on a small inlet in the cliffs around Cap Sizun, the most westerly point of mainland France.

    Facing north onto the Baie de Douarnenez, the beach receives some protection from the full force of the Atlantic Ocean, which results in generally flat conditions for paddling and swimming during the… read more »

    One of the larger beaches on this stretch of the Brittany coastline, Plage de Gwendrez consists of a strip of fine pale sand descending gently into lagoon-like shallows.

    Surrounded by an unspoilt landscape of gently rolling fields, access is via the attractive town of Plouhinec. Divided into a smaller northern and larger southern section by a low outcrop of rocks that are perfect for children to clamber over, this family-friendly beach… read more »

    Travel time from Crozon: approx 0.5 hrs

    Plage du Ris is the biggest beach in Douarnenez and when the tide is out a huge expanse of sand is revealed. The beach is just to the north of the town but the surrounds are quite rural in feel.

    To the rear of the beach is a large grassy area with picnic tables. There are also a number of traditional beach huts that hark back to the golden age of… read more »
