A short hour’s drive from Mont Saint-Michel, Dinard and the Côte d’Émeraude, welcome you.
Dinard, a quaint seaside resort
From Saint-Malo, after passing the famous Rance dam, with its tidal power plant – we arrive at Dinard.
Today, the resort owes its attraction to its architectural wealth: notably its four hundred protected 19th-century villas, and its cultural dynamism.
In the heart of the town, we fall under the spell of the Plage de l’Écluse and its famous blue and white striped tents.
This is the perfect starting point to discover the Pointe du Moulinet, which leads on to the Clair de Lune boardwalk, with its breath-taking view of Saint-Malo. Here, we find the maritime heart of the town: between its marina and the pier. Take the opportunity to hop on the sea bus and conquer the sea-faring town, or enjoy a day-trip on the waves.
From Saint-Lunaire to Lancieux, to the rhythm of the tides
We continue along the coast
Suddenly, Saint-Lunaire welcomes us with a harmonious blend of wild nature and seaside life. La Grande Plage, with its cabins and restaurant, right on the seafront, promises delicious slices of local life.
However, the town is no less respectful of its environment: bearing the “Ville Nature” (Natural Town) label.
Still not sure? Let us continue on to the Pointe du Décollé and take in the beauty of the panoramic views.
From here, its neighbour Saint-Briac-sur-Mer reveals itself: the Pointe de la Garde Guérin and its splendid panorama; its Golf Course, one of the oldest in France, and its clubhouse – classified as a Historic Monument. As you enter the village and its alleys via the famous GR34, you will be greeted by the sight of the park of Nessay and its castle, the perfect location to stroll and create magical, unforgettable moments.
Once you cross the Frémur bridge, the Lancieux resort offers a haven of peace to those who wish to linger a little longer. Between land and sea, the resort reveals contrasting and varied walks and hikes, all along its coastline. However, Lancieux is also a sports destination with a fantastic kite-surfing spot.
Between land and sea
The Côte d’Émeraude has many other assets to offer.
A few kilometres from the sea, La Richardais and Le Minihic-sur-Rance welcome us to their charming villages on the banks of the Rance, surrounded by nature. Here, the calm, gentleness and serenity of the various walks available reign, along with a range of nautical activities on offer.
Cycling is another excellent way to discover the area, particularly around Pleurtuit and Tréméreuc, crossed by the EV4 Vélomaritime route or the V3 walking/cycling route. Sheltered in a woodland setting and surrounded by hedged farmland, yet never far from the water: here, you can discover the charm of the countryside.
And you’re just a few pedal strokes away from Beaussais-sur-Mer, an ideal stopover – with its many shops and restaurants. Born from the regrouping of Ploubalay, Trégon and Plessix-Balisson, in this small town you will find the hearts of several villages, each with its own soul and its particularities:
- Trégon, with its menhirs and covered walkways, offering proof of a very distant human presence.
- Plessix-Balisson, with its artists’ studios and its eco-neighbourhood.
- Ploubalay, with its privileged location and the dynamism of its town centre.
