Dinan and Cap Fréhel

This 270 km (5 hours) circuit will allow you to discover several places not to be missed on the north coast of Brittany, whether it is Dinan, whose basilica houses the heart of the knight Du Guesclin, the fortified town of Saint-Malo or the superb views of the ocean offered by the Pointe du Grouin or the Cap Fréhel. Inland, you will certainly take great pleasure in finding the small roads that are much less busy than those along the coast.

There are 4 tourist stops on this route. You are free to stay for a few minutes or a few hours.

1. Montcontour : The medieval town of Moncontour is surrounded by imposing 13th and 14th century ramparts which enabled it, at the time, to defend Lamballe, the capital of Penthièvre. Like its neighbour Locronan, Moncontour was marked by the production of Berlingue (linen and hemp cloth). Beautiful bourgeois houses, the town hall and the church remain from this flourishing period.

2. Beach Sables d'Or les Pins : Large sandy beach of 3 km with a view on the islet Saint-Michel d'Erquy. At the end of the beach on the left, the tip of the Flèche Dunaire opens the marsh of Sables d'Or les Pins. This marsh fluctuates according to the tides.

3. Cap Fréhel :  Cape Fréhel, with its cliffs 70 metres above the waves, is one of the most grandiose sites in Brittany. You will be amazed by this breathtaking place and by the Fort-la-Latte which dominates the sea. Beaches and breathtaking views follow one another along the customs path.

4. Dinan :   A medieval town nestled in a meander of the Rance, the new Commune of Dinan promises you a magnificent discovery or rediscovery.
