Day at the beach
The principal beach in Bénodet is Plage Trez, 600 metres of sand, with amenities, a water sports centre and lifeguards in summer. And just around the headland into the estuary of the River Odet, there is a small beach close to the port which is nice in the afternoon when it gets full sun.
To the east of the town, the Plage du Letty is perhaps Bénodet’s most iconic beach with an unusual setting at the entrance to a natural lagoon created by a long sand spit. This position makes it a sheltered spot, but means that bathing is only really possible at high tide. Parking is limited but there is a car park at the nearby cove of Plage St Gilles, from which you can take the coastal path to Le Letty.
There are also many other beaches between Bénodet and Concarneau, from small bays such as Beg Meil to the long wide expanse of Kerambigorn. Explore and find your favourite!
