Greve De Lecq

Plemont

Grosnez

Grosnez

The castle was built around 1330 and the walls were built from the local granite and are thickest on the landward side. Its position on a clifftop 200 ft (~ 60 m) above the sea means that on three sides it is protected by the natural features of the site. A ditch dug into the rock provides protection on the fourth side. What remains today is a gatehouse separated from the mainland by a big ditch and a section of wall.
Grosnez Castle is on public land so you can visit it anytime and the sunsets here are breathtaking.

Plemont


Plemont is a beautiful cove on the north coast, with golden sand for sunbathers and rock pools and caves for adventurers. Alongside the steps down to the beach is a stream which makes a waterfall down to the beach. The beach disappears entirely at high tide but at low water there is a fine expanse of firm golden sand.The caves can be found west of Plemont Beach and sometimes you can walk into the caves almost entirely on dry sand - other times there are deep sandy pools in the cave entrances that you will have to wade or swim through. The views from the caves looking back towards the beach are breathtaking.


Greve De L’Ecq

This beach has course, golden sand and there is a stream which flows over the sands at the eastern end of the bay. During the 17th and 18th centuries, the bay of Greve de Lecq was used regularly by ships sheltering from storms or bad weather and this port gradually became a regular stop off point for passing vessels. Work began on a breakwater arm late in the 18th century, however, continual storms and strong winds hampered proceedings with the pier repeatedly collapsing into the sea and needing to be re-built. The pier was eventually left in it's half built state after yet another storm around 1820 and the pier foundations are still visible today at low water and stretch for approximately 35 metres after the end of the main arm.
