Saint-Briac is a charming little village nestled in the heart of the Emerald Coast, a few minutes from the seaside resort of Dinard (8 km, 10 minutes by car, 30 minutes by bike). Even if it is a tourist village, you will not find here a mass tourism which makes that the village was able to keep its charm and an authentic side.
It is a Breton village strongly marked by its maritime past, which has gradually developed its seaside resort. Around the old bell tower, the narrow streets of the center are narrow and there are houses of captain.
There are many beaches in Saint-Briac: 10 to be precise with notably the beach of the Great Salinette, and the beach of Porue to name only the biggest. Their name comes from the ancient beaches of stranding or the salt trade for the Grande and the Petite Salinette. I suggest you to discover them through some pictures below. This diversity will allow you to be able to change your beaches according to your desires and choose your exhibition. In Saint-Briac, we are close to Saint-Malo and the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel which means that the tides are very important; The sea retreats away, sometimes to several kilometers which allows to make super strolls in the bay. You can also go fishing on foot.
La Garde Guérin overlooks the village, it is a classified dune located in the immediate vicinity of the golf course, which is the second golf in France historically and which has the chance to give its players enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea You can see the bay of Lancieux, Agot Island, Saint-Lunaire but also Fort La Latte and Cap Fréhel which I have already mentioned. I would devote an article to it in more detail in the near future.
The only defect in Saint-Briac that I still have to mention: the temperature! Except during the heart of the summer, you should not be too hot; The average temperature is rather around 14 ° C and there is often a little wind. However, just put on a good Breton sweater so you can enjoy the beauty of the landscapes without shivering with cold!
