La Palue Beach
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.
Facing straight onto the Atlantic and views of the rocky Île Guénéron, this beach’s shallow draft means a significant portion of its sands are temporarily lost during the highest tides, while swimming is prohibited due to the strength of the waves. However, La Palue is still popular during the high season due to its allure to surfers.
At low tide, Plage de la Palue is linked by a short sand bar with the neighbouring beach of Plage Lostmarc’h to the north.
