Map of the seaside resorts and beaches in Brittany - France

Composed of four departments, Brittany offers a varied coast. The team at plages.tv suggests that you discover the beaches of Brittany through the different seaside destination that we've visited.

The south of Brittany, made up of the beaches of Morbihan and south Finistère, offers beautiful stretches of sand. The Gulf of Morbihan and the little island make up some of the marvels of Brittany. It is in the continuation of the department Loire-Atlantique. Nearby, the peninsula of Quiberon contains some of the most beautiful beaches of Brittany. Near the beaches of Finistère, the peninsula Crozon offers a wild coast with a few secret places.

The north of Brittany offers a different landscape than the south with a rugged coast and remarkable sites that are often accessible from the coastal footpath. The beaches of the Cotes d'Armor offer different landscapes when we are on the coast of Granit Rose, on the coast Goelo or the Cote d'Emeraude.

The beaches of Ille et Vilaine are remarkable and easily accessible. We are in the heart of the Cote d'Emeraude and the coast is bordered by beautiful villas.
