Plage de Théolen

Plage de Théolen - France

The beach of Pors de Théolen is tucked away at the end of a small valley near Cap Sizun. This is a sheltered cove that was used for many years by fishermen. Those days are now gone but the beach is now popular with visitors, both local and holidaying.

Pors de Théolen itself is a mix of pebbles and sand above the high tide mark. However, as the tide goes out a large area of sand is exposed, along with a number of rockpools. Perhaps the beach’s most defining feature is the large rock in the middle of the bay.

In addition to the various rocks beyond the shoreline are a couple of wrecks. One is of an old steamer, the Premier which went down in 1886, and all that remains is the iron boiler. There is also the wreck of an aircraft but not much remains of this after many years in the ocean.

Overlooking the beach is the “Buvette” or refreshment bar where you can buy drinks and snacks.
