Saint-Michel-en-Grève (Breton: Lokmikael-an-Traezh) is a commune in the Côtes-d'Armor department of Brittany in northwestern France.

In 2009 huge quantities of Ulva lactuca washed up on the beach at Saint Michel, causing the death of a horse[1] and possibly a factor in the death of a cleanup crew truck driver.[2]
