Breton weather is notably changeable, so prepare for rain or shine. Skip the crowds and avoid the French traditional holiday month of August. It is best to book surf lessons well in advance during school holdiays (July and August in particular).
Bretagne’s wild beaches are only accessible by car. Access to the beach is through a steep dune walk, so avoid bringing too much. Only pack a stroller/buggy that has large rubber, all-terrain tires.
It’s best to visit the beaches in Bretagne in the mornings or late afternoons to avoid traffic and busy car parks.
Skip the crowds and avoid the French traditional holiday month of August. Early July and late August are best - it is lively but not too crowded.
If you are renting accommodation, you can buy ready-made buckwheat crepes (also known as ”galettes”). Just add ham, cheese and one egg for a cheap and cheerful - yet appropriately local - meal.
