Visit Locquirec (Brittany, France)

The seaside resort and village of Locquirec is situated on a small peninsula on the coast of Finistere (northern Brittany) to the east of Roscoff and Morlaix in Lannion Bay.

A small traditional village based around its harbour, Locquirec has typical whitewashed and granite Breton houses, and a village church.

Exploring Locquirec

It doesn't take long to explore Locquirec itself, but it is a pleasant place to stroll around, and along the seafront looking at the boats in the harbour, stopping perhaps in a cafe or creperie en route. Take a look at the church just behind the harbour which features a decorative 17th century belltower.

Beach in centre of Locquirec

Of course, Locquirec is usually visited for its beaches. There are small beaches within the village itself, and two larger beaches - the Sables Blancs (White Sands) beach and the beach of the Moulin de la Rive - close to hand on the sides of the promontory.

The position of the beaches to east and west of the peninsula means you can always choose a beach that is sheltered from the wind, although families will usually prefer the Sables Blancs Plage to avoid the bigger waves on the Moulin de la Rive beach.

The weekly market in Locquirec takes place each wednesday.

Because of its position at the end of a promontory the view from the headland at Locquirec is especially impressive and reaches as far as the western part of the Cote de Granit Rose, while following the coast path also allows lots of opportunities to admire the scenery.

Attractions nearby

There is a great deal of lovely coastal scenery nearby, with the coast around Perros-Guirec a personal favourite. You are also between the attractive towns of Lannion and Morlaix, both of which contain interesting historical town centres and are very pleasant to explore.

You can find more travel ideas in the Finistere guide and the Brittany guide.
