The Beach Guide

Plage de Pors Péron

Almost hidden below rugged cliffs covered in verdant grasses and wildflowers, the light-coloured sands of Plage de Pors Péron are situated on a small inlet in the cliffs around Cap Sizun, the most westerly point of mainland France.

Facing north onto the Baie de Douarnenez, the beach receives some protection from the full force of the Atlantic Ocean, which results in generally flat conditions for paddling and swimming during the warm summer months. Plage de Pors Péron also benefits from shelter from the region’s east winds thanks to its cliff setting.

Deep rather than wide, the beach has some natural rock protrusions to its extremes, but they will interfere little with any planned time on Plage de Pors Péron, or jaunts between the pale sands and the almost Mediterranean colouring of the sea here.
