“lovely beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

lovely beach here.
there is a sailing school which looked excellent. You can book it for during the school holidays and I think they speak a little english but if your children dont speak some french I guess they may feel left out.
book in advance if you plan to do this, but if you are French, it looked absolutely lovely.
there are beach huts - you can hire via the tourist information.
there are also three restaurants/cafes behind the beach looking over it. - pizza crepes etc and prob seafood

“Beautiful sunny day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

Lovely walk down to the beach, although may be too much for some to manage the walk back up the hill. The day we visited was a beautiful, sunny September day and the views were lovely. The beach had few visitors, probably gets packed in the summer!

“clean Brittany Beach with lot of things to do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

great beach to start from, sea kayaks can be hired really cheaply and safely to try ( harder than it looks to stay straight!), or sit and enjoy the views. if you walk along the coast path just 5 -1o mins around the headland is an even better sandy beach that was deserted when we went, even though it was high season and a hot sunny day.
