Plouharnel for nature lovers
For slow travel enthusiasts, Plouharnel is a Breton paradise just for you! Breathe in the iodized air of the ocean as you stroll along the large beaches of fine sand bordered by miles of dunes. On the bay side, the beaches, perfectly protected from winds and sea currents, invite you to observe many migratory birds. You can also indulge in the pleasures of shelfish gathering on the beach of Sables Blancs.
On foot, explore the historical heritage through the hiking trails. Remains of the Atlantic Wall, megalithic sites, Benedictine abbeys of Sainte-Anne and Saint-Michel de Kergonan or the old town mark the various hiking routes and arouse your curiosity.
