Plougastel was one of the first towns in Finistere to receive   the «  3 Lauriers » award  which is a quality label for towns which are actively involved in sport.  It is equally the first to be labelled «  Terre de jeux 2024 » . It obtained the largest number of sports disciplines  for its  preparation centre for the Olympic games . The quality of the facilities is irreproachable and  this has been highlighted by various delegations who have visited here. Plougastel,  nestling in the bay of Brest,  offers a unique experience to visitors and is a perfect destination for visiting  delegations.    Visitors to the town leave with fond memories, especially of the Plougastel  strawberries which are one of its specialities.
