Plage de Pen Hat

The beach of Pen Hat is one of the most exposed on the Crozon Peninsula. Facing directly into the full force of the Atlantic Ocean the rolling waves can be very impressive. Whilst this is often great news for the surfers it adds to the beaches already dangerous reputation for swimming. In fact bathing here is prohibited due to the presence of what are locally referred to as "baïnes" - these are deep depressions in the sand caused by the tides and currents.

The beach itself is a wild but beautiful stretch of golden sand with very few signs of development to detract from it. To the rear are sand dunes whilst at either end the beach is flanked by tall, rugged granite cliffs.
