Whether you are with us for one or two weeks (or more!) or simply passing through, here are the five must-sees to discover in Fouesnant-les Glénan in summer

1. Explore the creeks.

Of the 14 kilometers of beaches that line the coastal path at Fouesnant-les-Glénan, there is a truly unmissable portion: the coast between Cap-Coz and Beg-Meil!

It is here that you will find the beautiful little coves of fine sand, some of which are only accessible on foot by taking the GR34.

Exposed due east, in the morning they are bathed in light and ideal for a family picnic, in the afternoon you will find a little shade: appreciable when it is hot.

More of a fan of wide open spaces? Do not panic ! Everyone can find the beach that suits them in Fouesnant.

2. Walk in the Mousterlin Polder and around the White Sea

So, yes, in Fouesnant there are beaches – even among the most beautiful beaches in Brittany! But not only ! Indeed, it is not enough to move far away from the sea to be completely out of place and change the atmosphere.

To do this, go to Pointe de Mousterlin from which extend on either side two coastal spits. On the right, a 5km dune ending in a small estuary allowing the sea to penetrate inland depending on the tide: this is the white sea.

On the left the Mousterlin Polder, a space where the arrival of sea water has, unlike the White Sea, been controlled by man. It is therefore a whole ecosystem that has developed there. Much greener and wooded, only the sound of the waves on the other side of the trees reminds you that the sea is not far away!

Lovers of birds and tranquility will find their happiness there, in particular by going to one of the three ornithological observatories.
