Plage de Pors-Carn
Just north of Penmarch and close to hotels, museums, and other leisure activities, Plage de Pors-Carn lies in a small area of protected coastline where grassy dunes lead to wide near circular bay encompassing two kilometres of fine white sand.
Shielded from the largest waves of the Atlantic Ocean by the Pointe de la Rue de Flots at its southern end and the famed Pointe de la Torche at its northern end, Plage de Pors-Carn is generally safe for swimming for those of all ages. However, dogs aren’t permitted on the beach, meaning Fido will have to stay at home.
For the more actively minded, not one but two surf schools can provide tuition to novice bodyboarders, surfers and stand-up paddleboarders (SUPs). This long stretch of aquamarine water is also popular with fishermen eager to pit their wits against the native fish, and horse riders keen to experience the thrill of beach riding.
