The Blancs Sablons beach of Le Conquet!

This is beautiful seafaring area of my lovely Bretagne. I have several posts on Le Conquet, but looking into my vault do not have these pictures so,therefore, let me tell you more of the Plage Les Blancs Sablons of Le Conquet. Usually do not do a single post on a beach but this one is very nice and worth the post and detour, Hope you enjoy it as I.


The Le Conquet is in the department of Finistère 29, in the lovely region of Bretagne. The presqu’ïle de Kermorvan peninsula, connected by a very narrow isthmus to the mainland, has a fairly rugged cuminant relief at an altitude of 30 meters. The town of Le Conquet is served by the D 789 road coming from Brest, via Plougonvelin (my route), by the D 67 coming from Saint-Renan as well as the D 85 coming from the Pointe de Saint-Mathieu , Plougonvelin.


The magnificent Blancs-Sablons beach, 2.5 km long stretch of white sand extended by a dune area. Exposed to north-westerly winds, this is an excellent surf spot. There is a huge beautiful sandy beach after a long passageway of sand and wood stairs down to the beach. The nice soft white sand beach is awesome and we love it!  The Plage Les Blancs Sablons is a wild place,also conducive to swimming and fishing on foot. You can find mussels, abalones and winkles there. From the Blancs Sablons, you will have a magnificent view of the Kermorvan peninsula and in particular of Fort de l’Ilette.


At the Blancs Sablons, Vauban had to defend the beach from an attempted landing… targeting the arsenal and the city of Brest. For lack of means, the fortification started in 1689, Taking over old defensive works, it is essentially composed of palisades, entrenchments, cannon batteries and redoubts to shelter the men… These works are inspired by standard plans (for the guardhouses, hangars, stores and entrenchments …) and general recommendations established by Vauban commander of the area of Brest in 1694.
