The Bay of Audierne


The Bay of Audierne runs along 40 kilometres of coastline from the Pointe du Raz in the north to the Pointe de Penmarc'h in the south.

Once past the rocky coast around Penmarc'h and the Pointe de la Torche, the Bay as far as Plozévet is mainly characterised by a flat shoreline edged by a pebble ridge with dunes and ponds behind which lies a nature conservation area. From Plozévet to Plouhinec beaches alternate with cliffs and after Audierne the height of the cliffs increases progressively culminating in the spectacular Pointe du Raz and the rocky reefs which separate it from the Ile de Sein.

Discover the typical little harbour of Penhors and also Pors Poulhan at the northern limit of the Pays Bigouden

If you are a fan of nature, fresh air and wide open spaces, the long beaches of the Bay of Audierne are great for walking, rockpool fishing or simply relaxing and enjoying the incredible sense of freedom and space!
