“clean Brittany Beach with lot of things to do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 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.

“Plage de Kelenn is our favourite.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

We often go to Brittany on the ferry from Plymouth. We found this little coastal community one day when we were using the northern route back from Morlaix to Ste Paul-de-Leon and on to Roscoff. There are apparently seven beaches of which Plage do Kelenn is probably the biggest and is our favourite. We have usually driven down to the beach out of the high season and it has often been almost deserted save for a few cars an occasional dinghy and two or three of the half dozen or so beach side cafes open for drinks and good snacks or meals. Although surrounded by prosperous detached houses all in the late twentieth century faux regional style, there is an entirely easy going relaxed feel. The view across the approaches to the Morlaix estuary and some old fortifications and islands make this a very pleasant place to while away a few hours. The beach is soft golden fine sand and there is plenty of room to play and safe water for swimming.
