Inhabitants of Plouha are called plouhatins in French.
Plouha has many notable medieval sites ranging from chapels and churches to manoires and kers. The Chapel of Kermaria (Kermaria an Iskuit) is perhaps the most widely recognized, outside of Brittany.
World War II
Plouha's beaches were the sight of several Resistance efforts, notably as part of the Comet line, a resistance group that sheltered Allied troops and helped them return to Great Britain. The plage Bonaparte in Plouha was the site for the Shelburne Operation which organized the return of Allied airmen to Dartmouth, UK.
