Sandy beach with easy access and miles of clean sand. Tide goes out a long way! A couple of cafe/bars and takeaway pizza outlets, bakers and fruit/veg shop and a couple of seaside clothing and knick-knack shops. Love this beach!

There is adequate parking a few shops and restaurnat, but all in understated (at least... More

Great family beach - very clean and well maintained. We have visited in July an August and there is plenty of space for everyone even though its is very popular.

Plage Saint-Martin-de-Brehal is very nice and very interesting. You can walk aong the shore or rest on the beach and enjoy the sea and sun for hours. It is fun to stay there and we want to come again.

Visiting the plage in Brehal was one of the most intersting parts of our stay. It is one of the largest sites for oyster and mussel farms, which are "harvested" by local residents, complete with their tractors etc. at low tide. There is also a very interesting tidal salt marsh on the approach to the beach - don't get caught... More
