Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer, a charming village on the peninsula with 11 beaches
Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer – The Peninsula !
East of Saint-Cast, when you admire the panorama on the horizon, you can see the point of Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer. Once an island, today Saint-Jacut has become a warm, authentic and peaceful seaside resort. 11 sandy beaches crisscross the commune where you can swim, walk or simply enjoy the sun on your towel. Move from one shore to the other to follow the sun and the tide! To the west of the peninsula, you will surely come across the fishermen and oyster farmers of the Bay of Arguenon with its oyster beds and its bouchot mussels. To the east of Saint-Jacut, several beaches line the Bay of Lancieux, ideal for relaxation and a wide range of water sports.
An authentic village on the Emerald Coast
We also advise you to stroll in the small streets that make up the village, typically Breton. You will be able to stroll between the stone houses and settle down on the terrace to enjoy the atmosphere of the village. The market of Saint-Jacut is held every Friday with the inevitable sausage cake. You will also find creations of local craftsmen like the bags made from used sails of the sailing school of Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer.
The Ebihens archipelago
Small jewel of the peninsula, reach the Ebihens archipelago at low tide, this small ornithological reserve which shelters thousands of marine birds. From the Pointe du Chevet, cross the beach, feet in the water, to discover this small paradise at the end of the world. Here, the panorama is exceptional and changes with the hours and the landscapes. Take the path that crosses the archipelago: you will pass by small idyllic coves, wild vegetation and the only trace left by man on this island: the Vauban Tower.
Be careful not to be caught off guard by the rising water: remember to check the tide tables before the walk.
