This is a beach with a car park and several restaurants. But beware, it is very windy and the water is cold.

Brittany isn't called the granite coast for nothing! The top of the beach is lovely, but if you intend to venture to the waters edge you will need surf shoes or risk slashed toes!!!!

Lovely beach for kids, not too busy when we were there midday till about 4. Got busier later. Lots of rock pools. And safe sea to splash around in.

The beach was pleasant enough with a diving platform and toilet facilities but as our visit was a couple of days outside holiday season the beach cafes were all closed.

After arriving to Roscoff at 7am we decided to drive to Carantec for a breakfast picnic on the beach. We had a nice walk around the village, where everything at this time of the day was shut and quiet - beautiful and we settled on the beach for a picnic. The sun was raising, the sea was calm - it...
