Plage de Kersiguénou (Plage de Kerloc'h)
Widely recognised as one of the most beautiful beaches in the region, Plage de Kersiguénou is situated on the Crozon Peninsula, within the protected area known as the Parc Naturel Régional d’Armorique, a short distance from Crozon itself.
Facing west into the Atlantic from the deep Baie de Dinan, Plage de Kersiguénou is epitomised by 800 metres of soft pale sands interspersed with the occasional eruption of rocks, and is backed by stunning cliff vistas.
A well-known destination with the water sports community, it’s not unusual to be met by windsurfers and kitesurfers making use of the crossshore breeze, as well as swimmers closer to shore when the weather is fine.
This child-friendly beach is linked to neighbouring Plage de Kerloc’h to the north at low tide, while using the beach as a starting point for hikes within the protected area of the park is another popular pastime. One enjoyable hike leads south through a landscape that is home to otters, beavers and several species of birds of prey to Pointe de Dinan and the castle of the same name that lies on this rocky outcrop almost completely surrounded by crashing waves.
