The Sand Coast

- Back to: Stay

If you are looking for quiet white beaches with blue-emerald crystal clear waters, uplifting and enchanting hikes and marine wildlife, here is the perfect place ! Come and contemplate the whiteness of the sand and the clarity of the water, the ruggedness of the coast and the power of the waves!

The Sand Coast stretches from Santec (5 km to the west of Roscoff) to Plouescat; with almost 30 kms of dunes, beaches and rocky shores !

Our most famous hiking trail, the GR34, will lead you along the coast, offering you many opportunities for birdwatching, marine wildlife sightings, and often a spectacular show of crashing waves on the rocky shore. The trail way-marking is a system of red and white paint marks easily recognisable, so no language skills are required to decipher signs !

Have you ever seen a 18th century-old granite house squizzed between two giant granite boulders ? Then you definitely have to make a stop along the coast of Cléder, at Les Amiets Beach and Kerfissien, to discover the beauty of these two well-preserved ancient coastguard stations.


Choosing where to start exploring such a trail can be a daunting task. To make things easier, we've set up some itineraries for you in a hiking guide book, available for sale at the Tourist Information Centre for only 1€!

You don't have a car and wish to travel to The Sand Coast? Take the bus line 25 from Roscoff to Cléder or Plouescat!
