Leading directly from the hotel is a beautiful beach with sand, rockpools and galettes, the pretty local stones that are perfect for skimming! A fter a swim you can lie back on a lounger in our private garden overlooking the sea.

There is also a large (18 x 8 m) indoor heated salt water pool, a sauna and a hammam.

Our sporty guests will appreciate the gym with its treadmill, stationary bicycle and weights.

After the day's activity relax in the bar, where the fire crackles nightly, to enjoy a book or play a game from our selection.

 

Wonderful Walks

 

Located directly on the GR34 coastal path, the Grand Hotel des Bains is the perfect place for those who enjoy walking. We particularly recommend:

  • The "Côte Sauvage": head west on leaving the hotel and the path will take you directly to the Pointe de Primel, the views en route are simply stunning.
  • The "Côte de Granite Rose": the path winds between enormous pink rocks, shaped and polished by the elements over time, a magnificent landscape that includes the famous site of Ploumanach.

Our seaside location means there is a tremendous choice of nautical sports, including surfing, kite-surfing and paddleboarding, as well as sailing and diving through the very well regarded Sailing and Diving School of Locquirec.

Explore the sea by kayak, or hire a local boat.

You can also enjoy excellent local golf courses (Carantec and Begard), a game of tennis at the Locquirec courts or hire a bike through the village Tourist Office.
