The coastline here is truly spectacular, with a mixture of wide sandy bays and tiny coves separated by dramatic rocky headlands. Walkers and keen photographers will find endless gorgeous views from the coastal path. And the beaches are typically a perfect combination of fine white sand with rockpools to explore at either end.
Plage Garo, Grande Plage and Plage des Crapauds are the main beaches in Brignogan, and there is also a little cove called Petit Nice. The Plage des Crapauds has good facilities, including a lifeguard, and water sports are on offer. Plage Garo and Grande Plage are closer to the town itself and are in the most sheltered part of the bay, although this means that the tide can be quite far out.
Just around the headland, Plage Lividic is a long beach in a lovely natural setting, backed by dunes. And continuing east, Plounéour-Trez’s main beaches are Plage de Kerurus and Plage du Menhir, offering water sports, and good for swimming as the tide does not retreat as far as at Brignogan.
