The Bay of Audierne is one of France’s major natural sites. Stretching from the southern cliff of Pointe du Raz down to the Pointe de Penmarc’h’s majestic Eckmühl lighthouse, the bay extends following a 30 km long arc.
Bordered by pebble ridges (an Ero Vili in Bretton), the white sands beach of Kermabec lies between the Saint Vio and Trunvel freshwater lagoons. Easily accessible on foot or by bicycle, it is favored by hikers and bicycle travelers alike. Naturalists, ornithologists, and wildlife enthousiasts converge to this emblematic site to observe its wonderous environment or simply to unwind in its untamed setting.
To the south, Kermabec Beach merges into the beaches of Tronoën (located on the neighbour territory of Saint-Jean-Trolimon) followed by Plomeur’s La Torche beach, and north into Treogat and Plovan’s white sands beaches. During the months of July and August, a lifeguard post is open to ensure the safety of the bathing area from 1-7 pm. A team including a captain and four crew members watches over ocean bathers and advises beach goers on safety and risk prevention.
