Approach - The narrow entrance to Ploumanac'h lies just to the west of Pointe de Mean Ruz on which stands the conspicuous Mean Ruz lighthouse, built four square in the local granite. Ploumanac'h should be approached only in reasonably calm conditions during daytime. Red and green spar beacons mark the channel to the inner harbour. The inner harbour has a sill to maintain 2.55m of water within. It is possible to anchor outside of the harbour but this is dependent on tide. If you miss the tide, at one mile distance to the west there is an all-tide entrance to the anchorage at Tregastel-Plage with some buoys for visitors.
Protection/Shelter - HW springs allow entry of swell.

Eating Out - Francois Kerjean says the best restaurant as far as value for money in concerned is "Chez Mao" There is outdoor service under "paillotes". The Mao in this case is a Breton name rather than Chinese. Several good restaurants specialising in seafood. Hotel de Rochers, try the lobster in coral butter. Hotel le Phare for the cotriade, a Breton fish stew.
Local Area - Great sandy beaches. Interesting walks both along the coastline and inshore.
