Trebeurden, Cotes-d'Armor tourism & sightseeing
Visit Trebeurden (Brittany, France)Photo Gallery
Trebeurden is a small resort on the coast of north Brittany, in the Cotes d'Armor department and at the west end of the famous "Coast of Granite Rose".
Treburden is a small resort compared with some on the Brittany coast (including nearby Perrros Guirec), and has a limited number of shops and restaurants, but the town is in a pretty location with a beach in a natural harbour and rocks in the famous pink granite of the region.
There is a port in the centre of Trebeurden, with the main beach - the Plage de Tresmeur - to the left of the port and a smaller beach - the Pors Termen beach - to the right of the port. Both beaches are of sand, have a nice view with rocks and small islands in the sea, and are kept very clean. The shops and cafes are close to the Plage de Tresmeur, which is much large that the other beach.
Due to the shape of the coast around Trebeurden, the Plage de Tresmeur has the unusual characteristic for a beach in north Brittany of facing south-west...
If you continue further east from the town towards Tregastel there is another stretch of beach, called the Goas-Treiz, that is used by water sport enthusiasts and anglers.
The Trebeurden tourist Office as well as most of the restaurants are on the Rue des Plages in the town centre, with further choices behind the port, although again I should emphasise that Trebeurden is a small resort and choices are quite limited.
The principal activity when you visit Trebeurden - apart from spending time on the beach - is to explore the Ile Milliau, a small island about 200 metres from the port. This island was occupied in prehistoric times and in the centre of the island you can see an important dolmen called the 'Allée couverte" (covered alley). From the 15th century until the 20th century the land was farmed.
Visitors to Ile Milliau today can enjoy the natural environment with a wide range of flora and fauna as well as a coastline that includes lots of the pink granite rocks that make the coast here so attractive and unusual.
Note that the Ile Milliau is connected to the mainland and Trebeurden by a thin neck of land that is submerged at high tide, so check the tide times before you come if you plan to visit the island and the Allée couvert.
Trébeurden is best known for its position at the end of the Coast of Granite Rose, and it is the beaches and coastline of this region that are the main attraction and activity in this part of Brittany. The principal resort on the coast here is at Perros Guirec.
You will find several interesting paths that follow the coast that start from the centre of Trebeurden and reach viewpoints on the Coast of Granite Rose, with the best known being the GR34 that follows the coast of northern Brittany.
A few kilometres from Trebeurden there is a small theme park based around life in the region 2000 years ago at Le Village Gaulois.
