Why choose between the sea and the countryside? Bénodet has both!
For a simple stroll or energetic hike, explore the paths of Bénodet.
Start by walking along the pretty path laid out from the cove of Penfoul, in the undergrowth, along the Odet river. Then, walk along the marina, as well as the old port. Take a leisurely stroll to Trez beach, which is Bénodet's main beach.
The coastal loop
The Coastal Loop runs along the four beaches of Bénodet and is accessible to everyone. Stroll along the boardwalks of the Promenade without ever taking your eyes off the sea: simply enjoy the variety of views and landscapes unfolding before your eyes.
Follow the banks of the River Odet, walking past its seaside villas, until you reach Pointe Saint-Gilles, with its breathtaking view of Benodet Bay and the Glénan archipelago. As you keep walking, you'll move from the coastal scenery into the heart of nature.
Discover untamed Bénodet at Le Letty with its 'Mer Blanche'. This unusual inland sea is a never-ending spectacle of surf, mesmerising in calm weather and thrilling when the waves crash and foam.
If you'd like to know more about the Coastal Loop in Benodet, take a look at the pictures on this French blog Ma Cornouaille.
If you're cycling, you'll be glad to know that part of the promenade is accessible by bike or mountain bike. Both the trails are traced on a FREE map available from the Tourist Office.
