Bénodet beaches, seen from above (video)

Bénodet is a town that should not be missed on your itinerary when you come to Brittany. This seaside resort has been classified as the first seaside resort in South Finistère.

With its fine sandy beaches, its nautical activities, its casino and its many shops, Bénodet is a city that does not lack attractions, very popular for its many restaurants and bars.

1. Trez beach

Trez beach is the best known in Bénodet. 800m long, it is a large beach, the most touristy in the town. It enjoys a magnificent view and offers many services, such as the rental of windsurfing boards, dinghies and catamarans, a Mickey club for children. It is a family beach, supervised in the summer from 12:00 to 19:00. You will also find restaurants and ice cream parlors here. Ideal for strolling in the evening and seeing the landscape change at sunset.

2. Le Coq beach

The Phare du Coq beach is a small beach located between the Odet river and the ocean. It offers a beautiful shaded walk. If you’re wondering where this pretty green and white lighthouse got its name from, it conjures up the shape of a nearby boulder reminiscent of a rooster in profile. Enjoy this beach in the late afternoon when it is flooded with sunshine.

3. The beach  from Pointe Saint-Gilles

Pointe beach Saint-Gilles to Bénodet  is a cove located between the beaches of Trez and Coq. It is about 200m long. You will find there near an orientation table, and an exceptional point of view on the White Sea. Children will love to play little fishermen there, safely between the rocks. If the swell picks up, you can enjoy the show of kitesurfers.

4. The beach  from Letty to Bénodet

More wild, the Letty beach  is an atypical beach, facing a dune lagoon of fine sand (Cross at low tide with water up to your knees, taking care to check the timetables). It is a magical place where currents, sand, transparent water, wind and landscape combine for an exceptional spectacle. Surrounded by abundant vegetation, the Letty beach is shaded, which makes it the ideal place for a picnic break, or for swimming in the late afternoon (Be careful not to attempt to cross when the sea rises, the currents are then very strong and many people are trapped each year).

When you think of Breton seaside resorts, most people think of summer. However, the Bénodet region is a tourist site which offers a range of possibilities for the whole year. Indeed, the fine sandy beaches of Bénodet can be enjoyed at all times because they offer a light that changes with the seasons. 

Located just 20 minutes from the Fouesnant Forest and Camping les Saules, you can enjoy it from April to September for a weekend or a week of escape.
