Walk along the ocean in Bénodet

A walk to discover the city of Bénodet in Brittany.

Bénodet is a seaside resort located in Brittany. The walk presented is quite easy, it goes along the coast on a ledge and allows to discover the various creeks and beaches along the ocean. After a few kilometers you arrive in an estuary called "La Mer Blanche" where the landscape changes completely with an immense stretch of fine sand at low tide. However, you have to be very careful and take precautions because the water rises quickly. You can then return to the starting point by walking on the rocks along the ocean. A very beautiful walk.

In order not to go through the same way on the way back, you can walk directly on the rocks. This way, you can get as close as possible to the ocean to admire all the fauna that has remained sheltered in the crevices of the rocks during low tide.
