The sea

360° view of Sainte Anne islet

With its 13km seaside, Saint Pol de Léon offers a large choice of spots and beaches such as Sainte Anne, Kersaliou, Man strand (Grève du Man).

The « Groue » is the sediment strand which links the coast to the Sainte Anne island, forming the bay of Pempoul with its ashore harbour. The boats, most of which of traditional construction, lie there awaiting for the flow to come.

At low tide, the beaches are a paradise for foot fishing : schrimps, crabs, winkles, cockles,...

The sailing school at the end of the Groue pier proposes multiple sea activities for beginners or experienced users.

All along the coast, a foot path will give you a unique view on the changing Channel, the Bloscon deep harbour, the Callot island with its chapel. The Brittany Ferries massive ships navigate close to the small sailing boats of Carantec, the traditional « côtre ».
