Concarneau

 
 

Concarneau is a port-town offering lovely walks along the fishing harbours, the cliffs and around the walled town and ramparts which offer stunning views over the ports. You will find lots of restaurants, museums and souvenir shops in the walled town as well as street entertainment.

From the fishing harbour you can take a trip on an old sardine fishing boat with two fishermen and learn to fish ! From the marina you can take a boat trip to the Glénan islands. You can also visit the fishing museum, the marinarium, Château de Keriolet, take a tour of the town on the tourist train or simply meander around and discover the local delicacies and buy some gifts (Guy Cotten, Larnicol, Biscuiterie de Concarneau, Tri Martolod...).

Heritage

Walled town

Your holiday wouldn’t be complete without visting the walled town of Concarneau, located 10 minutes from the campsite. Originally the town was populated by fishermen living in thatched cotttages, before it was fortified for military purposes. It served as a refuge for military and commercial boats before expanding and developing the fishing industry. Access to the walled town is free throughout the day.

Fishing museum

Discover the maritime history of Concarneau at the fishing museum through models, boats and objects.

Marinarium

Visit the marinarium and discover the local biodiversity and understand the importance of protecting it.

Château de Keriolet

A splendid 13th century castle, remodelled in a Neo-Gothic style in the 19th century. Guided tours available.

Tourist train « Le Petit Train »

Take a guided tour of Concarneau on the tourist train and learn about the history of the town, its canning industry, fishermen and painters.

Beaches

Sables Blancs beach

Sables Blancs beach is located near Concarneau town centre just in front of the thalassotherapy centre, about 15 minutes from the campsite. What better than to take a dip in the sea after a relaxing massage ! You can end your day at the restaurant Le Nautile, located on the beach.

Beaches at Pointe de Cabellou

Once a lookout to protect the coast from attack by sea, Pointe de Cabellou is today a superb peninsula with sandy beaches and craggy rocks. You can reach the different beaches from the GR34 coastal path which also leads to the campsite.

Beaches along the corniche

These are the beaches nearest the town centre, with a view of the boats coming and going from the harbour.

Ports

Fishing harbour

Concarneau owes its development to the fishing industry. Local fishermen used trawlers to fish first for sardines, then tuna. There is also a small fishing harbour at Pointe de Trévignon near the campsite where you can buy your fresh fish and crustaceans.

Marina

More and more amateur yachtsmen are attracted to Concarneau’s marina for its location. It plays an important role in the town’s economy.

Spa centre

Thalasso de Concarneau

Concarneau’s seawater therapy centre is located not far from the campsite, opposite Sables Blancs beach. Indulge in a day of pampering !
