The high, crenellated, cliffs of the Baie de Douarnenez make a striking backdrop for the rockpooling, crab hunting and shell collecting this beach is ideal for. Kite flying is another attraction, and there's plenty of space for other water and sand sports if you like to kick balls around or hit them with bats – or even if you like more dramatic pursuits like sand yachting or speed sailing. The caves in the cliffs add a even more 'Famous Five' friendly element to the beach, which does have some calm shallows and non scary caves for the 'Famous Five' reading generation.
