Saint Guirec Beach in Ploumanac’h, one of France’s most attractive villages, has a length of around 200 metres (700 feet) and a depth that makes it more than just a ribbon of fine golden sand. Dotted with large boulders which typify the region’s coastline, it has a good balance between tranquil seclusion and access to facilities that make it a family favourite.

While popular with bird watchers and hikers, it’s also possible to rent kayaks to slip out onto the waves or visit the Oratory of Saint Kireg. Legend has it that single women who place a needle into the nose of the saint’s statue here with be married within the year.

Primarily a destination reserved for day trips, stay until evening and in all likelihood you’ll have Ploumanac’h beach entirely to yourselves.
