Sables-d'Or-Les-Pins

A walk along the most beautiful beach in Brittany!

The town of Sables-d'Or-Les-Pins has had a turbulent history. At the beginning it was a crazy project of two real estate promoters who decided in 1922 to build a new seaside resort. After the initial success in the 20s, the promoters ended up ruined by the 1929 crisis, the resort remaining unfinished. There is little evidence of this era but the place remains beautiful. The promenade winds between the Islet estuary and the dunes of the beach. Do not hesitate to discover Sables-d'Or-Les-Pins.
