: Little dreamcoves in “Fouesnant”
The coves of “Beg-Meil” A costal path along the cliff , full of camelias, rhododendrons
and azaleas, follows the bay of “la Forêt-Fouesnant”,then thick clumps of ferns
lining up till “Beg-Meil” end. This costal walk, from « Concarneau » to
« la Mer Blanche »
(litterally the White Sea), offers a superb
ride deep in the shady paths.
« Bot Conan » beach to « Beg-Meil »The coast between « Beg-Meil »
and « Cap-Coz », is divided into numerous coves, in which the
summer’s “Crusoë” adventurers dream being alone on the planet : and so they are
at “Bot Conan” or at the “birds’ beach”, “plage des oiseaux” in French.
« Beg-Meil » slipwaySmall coastal shelter from « Fouesnant »,
it is from « Beg-Meil » that, during peak season, you can reach the « Glénan »
islands by boat but also « Concarneau » harbour. Some professional
fishermen are based in « Beg-Meil ». The slipway is especially the place
for leisure like diving, sailing...
Under the “old French regime”,
"Beg-Meil" refers only to the rocky headland now called “the
semaphore headland”. This semaphore, building of the Navy, operates a marine
surveillance at all times, ensuring navigational assistance, territorial
surveillance and regulation of maritime traffic and fishing.

you can tease mullet, gurnard or bar.
