Our opinion on the Porh Gwenn Cove

Adresse of the Porh Gwenn Cove : Ch de Porh Gwenn 56360 Bangor - Belle-Île-en-Mer

There are many "white Ports" (or Porh or Porz Gwenn) in Brittany, including three on Belle Isle. That of Bangor should not be confused with Port Blanc in Sauzon, or with Port Guen in Palais. Porh Gwenn Creek in Bangor is a grey sand and pebble cove, framed by tuff cliffs, and is ideally sunny for a beach, i.e. facing south-west. But the water is a little cooler than in the neighbouring Herlin Cove.

To go there, go through the hamlet of Herlin and take the south path, then the first path on the right.
