Pénestin and its serveral beaches and coves

25 kilometers of coastline and a dozen beaches and coves, Pénestin has many assets! La Mine d'Or beach with its ocher cliffs and other beaches. The banks of the Vilaine to the north and the town of Assérac to the south will not fail to seduce you.

Soft sands, salt spray...

A dozen beaches and coves in Pénestin allow everyone to enjoy their holidays as they see fit: shellfish gathering, lazing around, swimming or board sports! The beach of Men Armor, in the very north, is for example ideal for birdwatching. Those of Camaret and Halguen offer a very beautiful view of the Vilaine. The Lomer and the Bile are ideal places for fishing on foot and those of the Source, the Maresclé and Loscolo are suitable for swimming. As for water sports enthusiasts, you have to go to Poudrantais!

Plage de La Mine d’Or, the most famous

It's true, this amazing Gold colour captures our attention (in days gone they searched for gold here…). You've here the sensation of witnessing ‘infinity’ at the sight of these cliffs and ‘ne-ver- ending’ beach.
