The Grand Plage of Quiberon, part III

I have written posts on this great big beach near me, but as the season is unwind, let me remind you of what is best in summer here me think. If one day you are passing near me and head for the beaches, you will probably won’t need to contact me just go directly to the Grande Plage or big beach of Quiberon. We are there even in w inter time! 

This, of course,  is my beautiful Morbihan dept 56 of my lovely Bretagne and this is the Big Beach of Quiberon! Let me tell you a bit more on the Grande Plage of the town of Quiberon in the Presqu’ïle or peninsula of Quiberon!

We come by car , D768 ,from its exit on the expressway N165, the best way to get here as it is a long peninsula. However, in summer there is the tire bouchon train from Auray, and bus no 1 of Keolis network from Auray train station. You can make connections to it from Vannes and even my little town of Pluvigner! I parked my car almost all the time at the practical and near Parking Varquez in city center except on market days which is held there or come after the market by 14h. There is also parking by the gare or train station Résistance or Butoir ,and a nice easy walk to it.

The Grande Plage is 900 meters of fine sand! This beach, in the heart of the resort, is accessible to all and has a parking for bicycles, a carpet and an armchair hipocampe for people with reduced mobility. In summer it offers a kids’ club and a beach bar. For your safety this beach is supervised in the summer and has a first aid station. Showers and toilets. We do enjoy the Grande plage or big beach, the center of it all here. It has kiddies areas, and grownups. Large beach with white sandy sands and wide enough to play games. This our favorite as it comes with easy parking, great eating/drinking places and very nice people. Can’t tell you enough. The Fischer beach bar is awesome right on the sand! and the front place Hoche has plenty to keep you for a day especially our favorite friendly owner l’Esplanade Café.

The Grand Plage faces south facing Belle-Île and is protected from the winds. The Gare Maritime is at one end with ferries to the out islands such as Belle Île en Mer.  It is bounded to the east by the casino and to the west by the port of Port-Maria and the ferry terminal. See trawlers in clouds of gulls. Along an esplanade around the beach at the foot of buildings from the Belle Epoque. There are many bars and restaurants with lively terraces as well as ice cream parlors. We love it !!
