Travelling to Benodet

Bénodet and Sainte-Marine are the two harbours of the mouth of the Odet river, natural link between the two banks and Quimper, capital of the Cornouaille region (15 km). The estuary opens in a beautiful bay towards the Glénan archipelago. The situation of the estuary well sheltered from the prevailing winds, the ease of its access to any hour of tide, the beauty of its wooded banks and its beaches make it a sought-after stopover.
