The Beach Guide

Lostmarc'h

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 any Atlantic swell that is going. However, with no lifeguards, and sometimes strong currents it is not recommended for swimming.

This is an ancient place and the cliffs overlooking the northern end of the beach are home to an Iron Age cliff fort and menhir which is considerably older. There are also the remains of a 17th century customs look out here too.
