The Best Beaches in Brittany

Family holidays in France aren’t complete without a visit to the beach. There’s nothing better for kids than building sandcastles, digging channels and frolicking in the sea, and Brittany has some wonderful beaches so is the ideal destination. So let us introduce you to some of the best beaches in the area.

Benodet Beaches:

Benodet, the resort in which we at Jantom Holidays are based, is a wonderfully family friendly destination. The area has a few wonderful beaches that are fantastic for rockpooling and exploring. A couple of beaches we recommend visiting include:

Phare du Coq

Phare du Coq is quaint beach located between the river and the ocean. The beach is lit by pleasant sunshine throughout the day and is especially beautiful in the afternoon. It is a lovely little beach that you can enjoy well into the evening.

Trez Beach

Trez Beach is located in the heart of the resort. This really is a family beach; you can enjoy everything from sailing boats, dinghies and even hire catamarans. There is a beach club where you can get yourself light refreshments or even rent a beach hut. This beach is supervised during the summer time.

Saint Gilles Beach

Saint Gilles Beach is a fantastic beach for exploring rock pools where you may find crabs, shrimp and more unusual shellfish. It is also great for those who are just looking to relax and sunbathe under the delightful French sun.

Letty Beach

Letty Beach is unique; it is a preserved natural lagoon and is a breathtaking sight to behold. You don’t want to visit here without your camera. Lounging by the lagoon in the summer time is a great way to spend a day.

Some of these beaches are located exceptionally closely to Jantom Holidays, whereas others are a little further away, but they are all worth a visit and we are perfectly located for access. You can’t visit Brittany without visiting a beach, so plan your trip today.
