The Beach Guide

Plage Baluden (Belle Île)

The Plage Baluden is located on the south coast of Belle-Île-en-Mer in the same bay as the bigger Plage d’Herlin. The beach here is somewhat smaller than its neighbour but arguably even prettier. Fine golden sand and clear blue water with gently sloping gassy dunes to the rear.

Sheltered by rocky outcrops to either side this little cove is sheltered from much of the wind and waves. However, the currents on this part of the coast are notorious so swim at your own risk.
