The sandy cove of Plage d'Herlin lies on the south coast of the island of Belle Île. It was formed by the confluence of three river valleys and is now a beautiful beach protected from the wind by low cliffs to all sides.

Plage d'Herlin is a popular family beach and does get reasonably busy during the summer holidays. There is usually plenty of room though and the beach manages to retain some of its wild / rural character throughout the year.

Swimming here can be dangerous due to strong currents which swirl and create patches of soft sand on the sea floor. There is however a seasonal lifeguard service from lunchtime onwards in the summer.
