The stretch of coastline around Plouescat is known as the ‘Côte des Sables’ (‘the Sandy Coast’) and it is truly blessed with the number and quality of its beaches. From wide bays with amenities to smaller quieter coves, they usually have a crescent of fine white sand edged by granite rocks and backed by dunes.
The cluster of little beaches directly north of Plouescat have a very natural unspoilt feel, whilst the main beaches of Porsguen and Porsmeur to the west of the town are more animated with facilities, water sports and a few bars and restaurants.
Just along the coast from Porsmeur is the huge bay of Keremma, with the longest dunes in Brittany. Learn more about this unique habitat at the ‘Maison des Dunes’ discovery centre.
