La Forêt Fouesnant and Port la Fouesnant
Kerleven beachThe main beach in La Forêt-Fouesnant
is a sandy beach stretching for over a kilometre.
Sheltered from the wind, it is ideal for swimming and sunbathing. During
the summer, it is lifeguarded and provides beach wheelchairs.
La Forêt-Fouesnant : old harbourLa Forêt-Fouesnant is a quaint fishing village boasting plenty of character and charm. This coastal resort, classified since September 2012, is anchored on rich soil in the shade of fruit trees, facing the open sea. La Forêt-Fouesnant exudes the sweetness of life and friendliness. Pretty traditional gardens in full bloom line the streets surrounding the old harbour. And the best way to discover and to share this authentic land is to take a stroll around the Sunday morning market.
Sheltered by the Cap-Coz headland, Port-La-Forêt is La Forêt Fouesnant's marina. It is the second largest marina in Brittany. Sailing enthusiasts share the harbour with sailing race champions (Michel Desjoyeaux, Jean Le Cam...) who have made it their home port. "Portlaf'" as they call it, is home of “Pôle Finistère Race”, national centre of excellence for training elite athletes whose achievements in races in Figaros, monocoques and 60 feet long multicoques are the pride of us all.
Port la Forêt
