In the countryside; Among nature; Near water
Situated in northern Brittany, between the superb Pink Granit coast and the Côte Sauvage (wild coast), Locquirec is a pretty little fishing harbour with sandy beaches on both sides, across the bay from Lannion.
Locquirec offers breathtaking views across the bay. At low tide, the sea gives way to a vast expanse of sand that fishermen on foot do not hesitate to visit and scratch to extract various shells. Cafes, restaurants, creperies create a particularly friendly atmosphere on the waterfront and in the streets.
