Things to do in Fouesnant
A day at the Glenan Islands
The Glenan is an archipelago off Fouesnant, less than an hour away by boat. It's an ideal one-day trip. What to see ? Blue waters, amazing beaches and rich natural marine reserve. If you are lucky, you may see dolphins! To access the island of Saint-Nicolas, boats depart from Bénodet, Port-la-Foret, Concarneau, Loctudy and the hold of Beg Meil (Fouesnant).
Visit Beg Meil
This lovely harbor next to Fouesnant comes alive during summer. Fresh fish and seafood restaurants, festive nights, sailing and paddle courses, walk from cove to cove under the pines at the tip of Cap Coz... A day to enjoy the local lifestyle in Beg Meil is one of the things to do in Fouesnant.
This city is well known for what we call the « ville close » (closed city). Behind walls built in the 14th century, it is a world apart that awaits the traveler who walks in the medeval city. Paved streets and ancient buildings for a genuine experience. From the ramparts, you can have a look at the port life of Concarneau. Nice museums and good restaurants are to find in the closed city.
