Crossed by various rivers, Plestin-les-Grèves, at the gates of Finistère, is located between the Yar and the Douron. Wooded and hilly, the commune has many fine sandy beaches. There is in particular the beach of the Lieue de Grève, a beach of more than 4km of a great safety for the children and which is discovered with low tide, on almost 1km500. On its coastline we find the peninsula of Armorique, a promontory erected between the Lieue de Grève and the Douron, rocky and littered with many coves.

Discovering our heritage

of Plestin-les-Grèves

A place of history

With cliffs, rocky creeks, and fine sandy beaches, Plestin-les-Grèves adjoins Locquirec in Finistère. But it is the Lieue de Grève, which extends from Saint-Efflam to Saint-Michel-en-Grève, which makes it one of the largest bays of the Côtes d’Armor. Long crossed by a Roman road, the Lieue de Grève hosts the Croix de Mi-Lieue, a real guide to cross the bay. Beware of the one who would enter in foggy weather! Overlooked by the Grand Rocher, this natural rocky promontory culminating at 84m, offers you a unique view of the whole bay.
Numerous are the archaeological traces on Plestin-les-Grèves, the oldest ones date from the Bronze Age. Then in the first centuries of our era, the Gallic-Roman thermals of Hogolo preserved for nearly 15 centuries as well as the fanum of Coz Ilis.

All leisure activities

on Plestin-les-Grèves

A festival of pleasure

Plestin-les-Grèves is one of the emblematic spots for the practice of sailing kites in Brittany. Not to be missed, every summer, the horse races of Saint Efflam, a unique event on this ephemeral racecourse. For Sherlock Homes at heart, the Escape Game Kergall reveals the hidden secrets of the seaside resort. Unmissable for over 10 years: the circuit of the chapels highlights the vernacular heritage of Plestin-les-Grèves and the Lieue de Grève through exhibitions, storytelling hikes or concerts. Rich in its many hiking loops, and trail tracks, the paths will lead you, at the bend of a manor or a fountain, from chapel to chapel.
