Carnac's "Grande Plage"


At the beginning of the last century, the first holliday homes were built along this two-kilometer long beach, facing south and enjoying the panoramic view over the Quiberon Bay.

It was the beginning of Carnac's seaside resort.

Bordered by these ancient villas full of charm, the Grande Plage is today always appreciated by the holidaymakers for its vast expanse of fine sand and the quality of its swimming water.

Sailing, sea kayaking, windsurfing, stand up paddle, diving ...: the Carnac Yacht Club located at the end of the beach offers a multitude of activities for water sports lovers.
