Going green and strolling for two 

On the program for your romantic Breton weekend: pretty little-known nuggets and endless strolls. 

 

Seafood stopover in Saint-Cast-le Guildo

From the large beach of Saint-Cast-le-Guildo to the port and its shops, take the Soleil Levant pedestrian link, bordered by cliffs. You can also opt for a boat trip from the port to Cap Fréhel or Saint-Malo. A spectacular view of the Emerald Coast awaits you. In any case, sea spray and sunbathing are on the agenda for this iodized getaway!

Two routes are available to you:

- From Dinan to Léhon along the banks of the Rance
- On the coast, in Saint-Cast-le-Guildo

Relax on one of the beaches

And to continue this weekend of May in Brittany, it is on the beaches of the coast that we invite you to stroll, and more particularly on the Great Beach of Saint-Cast-le-Guildo.  

Other beaches suitable for relaxation:

The Minieu Strike
Anse du Croc
Fresnaye beach
Vauvert beach
Ebihens beach

Find here all the beaches on the coast of Dinan-Cap Fréhel!

There are also small airs of paradise on the beaches on the banks of the Rance. That of Mordreuc offers a nice spot to spread out the towel and have a romantic picnic! Plouër sur Rance beach, more family-friendly, invites you to sit down in its restaurant with your feet (almost) in the water. As for the Grève du Roué, in Langrolay, it is a popular beach for swimming and is dominated by old windmills.

2 idea 

sports weekend with friends

Are you going for a 100% sports weekend in Brittany in May with your friends? Sunday sports enthusiasts, seasoned hikers or thrill seekers, there's something for everyone!

Step 1

Warm-up on the GR34

Pink sandstone cliffs, hidden coves and an isolated fortress are on the agenda for your first day in Brittany in May. You guessed ? We are talking to you about the GR34, voted best GR by the French in 2018, just that! Known as the Sentier des Douaniers, this hiking route is a must on a spring weekend.

Sand yachting session

Do you dream of a good bowl of adrenaline? Let's go for a session of yachting on the beaches of Brittany. Trim and bump the sail as you please at the controls of your racing car! One thing to know: it is facing the wind that you have to position yourself to stop your race.

Two possible places for your initiation 

Sables-d'Or-les-Pins
Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer

Sailors at heart will rather opt for an initiation to kitesurfing or a session of sea kayaking!

Pedal strokes on the banks of the Rance

To end this May weekend in style, go for a bike ride along the Rance. Pedal at your own pace from lock to lock until Léhon, Small City of Character©. 

Stick your head out of the handlebars to push the doors of Saint-Magloire abbey and stroll through the cobbled streets of the town. If you still have a little strength in your calves, climb up to the castle perched on its feudal mound and admire a breathtaking view. 

Another walk is worth the detour from the port of Dinan! Take the road towards Saint-Samson-sur-Rance to the port of Lyvet which precedes the Châtelier lock.

With Éléonore, the whole family gets involved! Manufacture of natural products, flower drying workshop or introduction to the art of ceramics, the choice is yours!

Introduction to shore fishing

At the end of May, it's high tide time! Take advantage of the vast expanses of sand that emerge to introduce your family to shore fishing. A national Breton sport to be practiced with care! We advise you to call on a qualified guide for responsible and safe fishing. Go to the Tourist Office to organize your outing and bring back crabs, clams and razor clams for lunch.

Over the water on the Rance

  • Dinan

Do you prefer having your feet in the water rather than on the sand? Taking to the open sea by boat will certainly give a summer air to your spring weekend! Let yourself be guided or become the own captain of your boat by sailing aboardan electric boat along the Rance. On board sailors!
