The Beach Guide

Plage de L'ile Vierge Beach (Virgin Island's Creek)

Quite possibly the most stunning beach in Brittany, if not France, Plage de L?ile Vierge was once voted the “7th Most Beautiful beach in Europe”. Set on the sheltered eastern side of Brittany’s Crozon Peninsula the beach here is mostly pebbles backed by high white cliffs to which pine trees cling. The water here is a crystal clear turquoise - unfortunately it’s about as cold as it looks! This secluded beach is more reminiscent of somewhere you would expect to find on the Mediteranean coast rather than a craggy spit of land in Northern France.

Despite its beauty crowds are rare at Plage de L?ile Vierge because access is easiest by boat. It is possible to get here on foot but it is a 20 minute hike including a steep scramble down to the beach. Definitely worth it as it may be, make sure you check the tide times as the beach all but vanishes at high tide.
