5 must-see beaches

There are 39 beautiful beaches and coves in the Iroise. Here's a selection...


Corsen beach in Plouarzel

Bordered by cliffs and sheltered from the wind, this beach boasts some of the clearest water in the Iroise region. But above all, it invites contemplation with its view of the Molène archipelago and the island of Ouessant. As night falls, you'll be privileged to witness the last sunset and the sweep of lights, lighthouses and beacons across the Iroise Sea.

Trez Hir beach in Plougonvelin

The Trez Hir beach is ideal for the whole family. South-facing and sheltered from the wind, it is popular all year round with walkers, joggers and water sports enthusiasts. The Plougonvelin nautical center offers sailing courses during the vacations for children and experienced sailors alike. Fancy a kayak trip in the Bertheaume cove? A rental point awaits you in summer. Accessible to people with reduced mobility, the Trez Hir beach has been awarded the Handiplage label. 

picto respectful tourism


Did you know? Seaweed, made up of natural debris washed up on beaches (seaweed, sea grasses, small crustaceans, etc.), prevents coastal erosion. It encourages the development of dunes and vegetation by nourishing the soil in the same way as the dead leaves that litter forests in autumn. The Conservatoire du Littoral therefore recommends leaving this debris in place. Even if it means rethinking our idea of a beautiful beach... 🙃


Blancs Sablons beach in Le Conquet

Listed as a Natura 2000 site and awarded the Pavillon Bleu label, this beach nestles in a magnificent bay of rock and fine sand, making it one of the most beautiful and photographed in Brittany. With a length of 2.5 km at low tide, it's a playground for the whole family, from water-sports enthusiasts to long-distance sailors.

plage portez locmaria-plouzané


Portez beach in Locmaria-Plouzané

With its nearby campsite and Tuesday concerts, Portez beach is a lively place in summer. Bordered by the coastal path and several cafés-restaurants, it's a landmark for summer visitors and hikers alike. Children love to play on the soft rocks at low tide.


Tréompan beach in Ploudalmézeau

Welcoming in its size and the quality of its white sand, Tréompan beach, bordered by remarkable dunes, lends itself as much to strolling as to kitesurfing and sand yachting. Marked by the imposing Serpent Rock, a veritable natural screen, the area offers a fantastic family playground for beach soccer or sand castles for the little ones.
