Why take advantage?
L'anse du Loc'h ("pond" in Breton) is a remarkable geological site, consisting of two parallel pebble beaches forming a natural dike. At high tide, the sea submerges this barrier and floods the land behind it.
As well as being a charming little beach overlooking the Brest roadstead, it's also the starting point for walks on the GR 34. Head east for the Landévennec forest, and west for Lanvéoc and the Poulmic cove.
