Our opinion on the Port Maria Cove

Adresse of the Port Maria Cove : Rue de Port-Maria 56360 Belle-Ile - Locmaria

Port MariaBeach in Belle Ile en Mer is located in a narrow cove opening into the cliff and separating into two little coves at high tide. This is historically the beach of the small port town of Locmaria, which doesn’t houses many boats anymore but is popular with children (and adults) for its small jetty from which they dive. At low tide, sand covers all the surface of the estuary, but at high tide, sand remains only on two fringes each "hosting" only twenty people. It is a friendly beach, which has the other advantage of being one of the island’s closest beaches to a village (300 m).

When the tide goes down, the sandy bottom occupies the entire depth of the estuary, sandy from end to end and gently sloping. Both parts of the beach communicate at high tide by a small coastal path on the left.
