Parking opposite, clean sands and a pretty bay not far from the centre of Douarenez. Suspect it will be very popular in summer, but in April it was blissfully quiet.

The spacious plage of the Riz, the white sand, you can surf certain days, when the tide goes down you can go shell hunting for clams, fish sol while walking along the beach, your children are safe, is great.
