Plage du Petit Minou, Plouzane

#10 of 13 in Beaches in Brittany
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".
Plage du Petit Minou is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Plouzane Edition.

    Beautiful place however according to the tide it is difficult to lay down his towel on dry sand. Depending on the swell., it can be difficult to bathe. C was the case today as the sea went down and the sand was wet and big waves with a lot of surfers. We never tire of this beautiful light and the lighthouse that offers a great ballad by the GR34
