Sainte Marine, a port with an incomparable atmosphere

It is here that the Odet river, one of the most beautiful rivers in France, flows into the Atlantic. Left bank there is Bénodet, the chic resort, and the right bank is Sainte-Marine, located in the town of Combrit.
Port Sainte Marine

In the heart of the Bigouden country, the port of Sainte Marine is a landmark for strollers, with its terraces, old stones, hydrangeas and small pleasure boats. Its simple and lively atmosphere is very popular with holidaymakers.

The sailor’s shelter

You will be able to visit there the shelter of the sailor created more than a century ago by Jacques de Thezac. Today it is a small, well-documented museum on the life of a sailor, and the Breton legends of sea creatures, mermaids and submerged cities.

The chapel of Sainte Marine

The chapel of Sainte Marine which overlooks the port offers a superb point of view. It is characteristic of the chapels of the region by its ex-votos and its wooden vaulted ceiling. A pardon, a traditional pilgrimage, is organized there every second Sunday in July.

The Fort

If you feel like staying on the coast up to the tip of Combrit, you can take the opportunity to tour a pretty fort built in the Napoleonic era and which now hosts contemporary art exhibitions.

Where to eat in Sainte Marine?

At noon, several options are available to you: lunch in the sun at the Café de la Cale or picnic in peace, near the Sainte Marine lighthouse. In the evening you will find several crêperies nearby for a typical and friendly dinner.

Note: the Sainte Marine market takes place all year round on Wednesday mornings, Place de Grafenhausen.
