Our opinion on the Poulains Beach

Adresse of the Poulains Beach : Rte de la Pointe des Poulains 56360 Sauzon

Poulains Beach or rather beaches are located near the northern tip of Belle Ile en Mer, because the ebb releases numerous coves. This is the northwestern tip of the island, on a cord half covered in sand and half covered in pebbles, called "Tombolo". The sand beach is open on all sides and the landscape is magnificent: the lighthouse of Poulains, the second empire fort where Sarah Bernhardt lived, the "Peulvenn" (in Breton, "white stone" accidentally francized into "Poulains") out of the water, the chair of Sarah Bernhardt and the coves with turquoise water ... make it very attractive beach. It is too much so, because buses full of tourists arrive on certain days. However, the many neighbouring coves are peaceful.

To get there, nothing is simpler. Just follow route des Poulains to the end.

This beach has the distinction of being open on many (sea) fronts: south, west, east and widening at low tide. At sea, however there is little room.
