Trebeurden is many people’s favourite. It is a nice, well-run marina and the marina master speaks good English. It has excellent beaches and spectacular pink granite (like Grande Rocques in Guernsey and Ile de Brehats). There are many great places to eat.
There is a village up the hill but no large town or centre. Think of this as a beach resort.
Tidal access is good with the sill well below half tide, on neaps, you can gain at least 8 hours of access.
Marina tide times 2018 – Trebeurden 2018
The facilities are fine and clean but rather dated.
If you leave around half tide going up, motorboats will have a good following tide all the way back to Guernsey.

At Pleumeur-Bodou there is a triple exhibition site.
The Brittany planetarium, with an English commentary on one day of the week, a telecommunications museum with up to date GPS etc and lots of English explanations and the Gaulois village.
The Harbourmaster very kindly sorted out a rental car for us. A person collected us and took us to Lannion in the rental car, where we did the paperwork etc. Worked very well and they were very professional and helpful but it was a 25min journey each way, so probably more practical if you want to hire a car for a number of days.
Has good reviews although does not look so appealing from the outside.
** Crêperie des Iles: My French friends think this the best crêperie in Bretagne – I agree! Now enlarged with a variety of pizza, crepes and grills.
Colin visited in July 2010. Good set menu (formula) at a good price (12 Euros for a Steak Frites, crepe and coffee), but if you have the steak option, “well done” is the same as UK medium. Also, Pizza and moules set menus.
