Plage du Petit Minou, Plouzane

4.7
#7 of 13 in Beaches in Finistere
The Phare du Petit Minou is a lighthouse in the roadstead of Brest, standing in front of the Fort du Petit Minou, in the commune of Plouzané. By aligning it with the phare du Portzic, it shows the safe route to follow for ships to enter the roadstead. It also has a red signal that indicates a dangerous sector around the plateau of les Fillettes (literally the girls), one of the submerged rocks in the goulet of Brest — sailors remember this by using the mnemonic "the Minou blushes when he covers les Fillettes".

  • The beach is good when it's low tide, otherwise it almost does not exist. This is the spot for surfers, so a simple dip to be careful not to take a surfboard in the nose.

  • Lack of Bowl, the first time where we went, there was a fog so thick that you couldn't even see the ocean! But it was atypical and we made wonderful pictures. On the other hand by fair weather and at low tide, this is exceptional, to do, even with small!
