The Morbihan is the ideal destination for a camping holiday. The islands and ragged coastlines provide the perfect backdrop for the sandy beaches, each as different as the next. Small uncrowded coves or long sandy beaches, you can always find your dream beach for swimming, sunbathing, picnicking and enjoying water activities such as surfing. To help you find the ideal beach, here is a selection of the 10 most beautiful beaches in Morbihan.

Men er Bellec in Saint Philibert

Men er Bellec beach is a beautiful shaded beach with a fairly gentle slope. It provides the perfect setting for a family afternoon, although swimming is not possible at low tide. This sumptuous beach is located in Tréhennarvour bay, south-east of La Trinité-sur-Mer. You can also enjoy a great walk along the coast.

Mine d’Or Beach in Penestin

Mine d’Or beach is ranked as one of the most beautiful beaches in Brittany. This natural site, protected by the large ochre cliffs, was once a gold mine.

This fabulous beach is a meeting place for walkers, especially at sunset. Here, an extraordinary spectacle will unfold before your eyes, as the rays of the sun seem to set the cliffs ablaze.

This beach is a definite must-visit during your camping holiday in Morbihan.

Treac’h er Goured beach on the island of Houat

Located off the coast of Quiberon, Treac’h er Goured beach is a long sandy beach, the largest beach on the island of Houat. It is bordered by dunes, to which it owes the name “la plage du Gouret”.

Herlin beach at Belle-Ile-en-Mer

Herlin beach is a must-visit during your trip to Belle-Ile-en-Mer.

It is surrounded by two large cliffs and is renowned for its picture postcard beauty.

For this reason, it is very popular with tourists but you can still relax and recharge your batteries.

Gouret beach on Ile aux Moines

Goret beach is an idyllic place located in a small cove, south of the largest island in the Gulf of Morbihan.

Suitable for swimming, its clear water is known to be the warmest in Morbihan.

Considered to be the largest sandy beach on the island of Groix, Grands Sables beach is ideal for family outings.

It stands out above all for its convex shape: it is wider in the center than at the sides.

Tahiti Beach on the Island of Groix

Located south of Lorient, the island of Groix has many coves and several beaches, each as charming as the next.

One of these beaches is Poulziorec beach, otherwise known as Tahiti beach. Located to the north of the island, this private beach can only be reached at low tide.

Its beauty, white sand and turquoise water are strangely reminiscent of the island of Tahiti, hence the name Tahiti Beach.

Magouëro beach at Plouhinec

Based south of Lorient, Magouëro beach in Plouhinec looks like a long desert-like beach.

With its 8 km stretch of beach, it is ideal for a nice walk with your family or partner.

On this uncrowded beach, you can drift off to sleep to the sound of the waves crashing just a few metres away.

Donnant beach at Belle-Ile-en-Mer

This wonderful beach with golden sand is the ideal place to escape and meditate.

Offering a breathtaking view of the coast of Belle-Île-en-Mer, this beach is renowned for its strong waves and cliffs.

Popular with surfers, this beach is, however, not recommended for swimming.

Kervillen beach in La Trinité-sur-Mer

Kervillen beach is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful beaches in this seaside resort.

Despite being close to several houses, this beach has conserved its wild aspect. It is bordered by salt marshes and small dunes, which protect it from the eastern wind.

You can easily find a quiet spot to sunbathe in peace and enjoy the sea breeze.

Kervillen beach is also great for watersports such as swimming, sand yachting, windsurfing and surfing.

Make the most of your holiday in Morbihan to explore other coves and beaches along the Breton coast or on the Rhuys peninsula.

We’re sure you’ll find your dream beach amongst those mentioned above.
