It is well worth the trouble to find the little beach at Perello:
The little unspoilt cove at the Plage du Perello in the commune of Ploemeur is a gem worth the time to find: white soft sands, rock pools and a beautiful setting.
You can park at the main car park at Perello and walk west past the larger beach, the Anse du Perello, until you come to the little beach at Perello. Or you can park where shown on the map and walk to the smaller beach.
Both beaches can get crowded in summer so we suggest you arrive early.
At the large beach there are toilets, showers and drinking water.
The little beach at Perello has no lifeguards, but in the summer months, the larger beach is monitored.
Remember to bring the kids beach toys as there are no playgrounds at either beach.
Picnic or restaurants
You will need to bring your own picnic or snacks as there are no facilities at either beach. However, if you would like a restaurant you can drive or walk (1.3 km along the coastal path) into Lomener (heading towards Lorient) for a good range of restaurants overlooking the sea, notably: Le Moulin Vert, Caffe del Mare, Les Viviers. Going the other direction into Kerroch here are also several choices.
In either direction there are stunning coastal walks. The 2km costal path past the La pointe du Talud (Talud headland) into the port Kerroch is particularly impressive.
Further down the road at Courégant, you can see the remains of the Atlantic Wall, built by the Germans during WII to protect from invasion.
There is no market at Le Perello but morning markets (8h-13h) at:
Lomener: Monday (place Gustave Le Floc’h)
Ploemeur town centre: Wednesday & Sunday (place Falquerho)
