Saint Philibert and the beaches near me!

Ok so moving alone in my beautiful Morbihan dept 56 of the region of Brittany/Bretagne or Breizh (Breton language) I like to show you a bit more of the goodies and lovely beaches we have here now that the season is getting nearer and planning is a virtue!

I am lucky perhaps to have so much near me next to the Atlantic coast with lovely beaches often overlook for those in the south and south east of France , however these ones here can keep up nicely in Summers. I have a wonderful choice of beaches that I have briefly mentioned in my other posts but like to tell you a bit more on Saint Philibert.

The town is really, believe me, best known for its megaliths stones that abound in this area going back milleniums without still knowing exactly how they got here. However, seldom the beaches are mention and they are very nice. Therefore,here is more on the beaches and goodies of the sea off Saint Philibert.

Saint-Philibert, is a  town  created in 1892 on territories that belonged to the town of Locmariaquer.   Here I come for my oysters and mussels, more below.

It is part of the community of towns of the Trois Rivières . Saint-Philibert has a total area of 7 km2; with average altitude of 10 meters. The neighboring towns are La Trinité-sur-Mer, Crac’h, Locmariaquer, Le Bono, and Carnac. The big city closest to Saint-Philibert is Vannes and is 20 km away (about 12 miles). The closest train station to Saint-Philibert is in Auray at 11 km( about 7 miles) (direct to Montparnasse Paris on TGV).

At Saint Philibert you have more megalith stones, more religious buildings from Chapels to Churches and of course the beaches. These are some of the best in the area; and we love it. The architecture is modern spacious home of the good living of my belle France.

The beaches are wonderful here  info can be found at Plages tv here in French:

And, after further loading here from the real thing, we continue to see the splendid beaches of Kernevest ; these are gorgeous and not far from the first one above. Toilet facilities and parking in the pines in a wild environment. Just what the doctor calls for relax you are in heavens.  The plage de Kernevest are just that, more here:

More in English from the Brittany tourist office official site here:

It’s the main beach and lovely with families and young crowd as well but quiet and beautifully serene facing the ocean and to your right the entrance to the harbor of La Trinité sur Mer.

As promise at the start these are my suppliers and they are both good!! We passed by many oysters and mussels producers like those at Intrenn Passion at the corner of rue des presses and rue de l’océan; more here:

Or a bit further the buying and tasting of oysters and mussels at Chez Jaouen , more here:

One more webpage to share is the Golfe du Morbihan or Gulf of Morbihan with tourist info on all the towns around it and have it on Saint Philibert: Gulf of Morbihan on tourist sites such as St Philibert

And there you go another nice sublime gem of my lovely Morbihan to share with you.  And of course, pretty Saint Philibert. If in the area let me know; and why not come, this is great living by the sea. Enjoy it

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
