Beaches of Finistère

Beach-lovers will be bowled over by Finistère

Let’s be honest, Mother Nature certainly spoiled us here in Finistère, where the 1200 kilometres of coastline mean it tops the list of France’s maritime areas. Here, long beaches of fine sand – gold or white – give way to tiny, hidden creeks or vast stretches of rounded pebbles, polished by the waves.

It’s a paradise for swimming, for watersports, for coastal walks and for fishing…

These clubs have been recognised by the French sailing federation (Fédération Française de Voile) for offering lessons and trial sessions for everyone, no matter what their ability.

Do you want to stretch out on a towel on the hot sand? Or maybe take a dip in the sea? To build an enormous sandcastle with the kids? To sunbathe slowly to the sound of the waves? To have a paddle in the sparkling water? To take photos of the shells?
