Ploumanach is not a marina in the sense we know it. There are no pontoons and you will have to moor and row ashore. However they do have a sill that retains the water so you stay afloat all the time. There are size restrictions, by memory it is around 35′, although larger boats (42′) have been welcome in the past.
The sill is reported to be at 2.5m and opening and closing times can be found in the following guide which covers Ploumanac’h and Perros Guirec http://www.guide-du-port.com/port-perros-guirec/
As you can see from the top photo, the channel is thin and there are rocks everywhere. Previous visitors who have had many years of uneventful arrivals recommend calm weather with good visibility. As one intrepid sailor explained “this year (2010) there were breaking waves rolling up the inlet and uneven water everywhere. Very scary, knowing there are drying rocks on both sides before you reach the certainty of the perches, and the channel was not clear. The wind was northerly” Thanks DC
The marina office is to the north and over the brow of a hill. It was closed when we visited. There are some public toilets nearby but we were not sure if they were the “marina” facilities
There are a few landing piers but this one is closest to the marina office.

If you leave around half tide going up, motor boats will have a good following tide all the way back to Guernsey.

Possibly only in July and August. In late June the Armor boats were visiting but not stopping. The kiosk is next to the Marina Office.
You can catch a bus to Pleumeur-Bodou where there is a triple exhibition site.
