Port du Crouesty in the Rhuys!!!

So let me start by telling you that i have written on the Port du Crouesty , part of the town of Arzon in the Rhuys peninsula on several previous posts in my blog. This is a very nice area of my beautiful Morbihan breton dept 56 of the region of Bretagne. However, this time was there for something different and took some pictures!

As said, this is a very nice place that has gathered a lot of attention specially from boaters but also tourists even from France. In the Morbihan, it is a must to visit. We love it with the family here doing all kinds of activities even tandem bicycle rides from one port to the other!

The reason I am writing again is because one of my former bosses (CFO) from Paris has recently purchase a boat and has it base here. He was so kind to stop by my house early this year and now firmly with the boat here, he nicely invited me over for dinner on the boat! So here I went again to see and eat out at his boat in near the Harbormaster office in Quai G!

The area is very memorable to me and my family so I was able to trade some tips with him and he show me around the installations reserve for boat owners who anchored there. They have full facilities even restroom and showers baby changers and even grocery delivery to their boats as well as a water taxi to take them from one side to the other all included in their wharf fees. The class à la Française!

Let me tell you a bit on the area to bring back some nice memories and help you on your decision to come here, a must I said again!

Arzon is a town located at the end of the presqu’île de Rhuys ( Rhuys peninsula), it is bordered to the north by the Gulf of Morbihan, south by the bay of Quiberon, western part of Mor Braz (the big sea by the Breton just before going out into the Atlantic ocean) , and to the east by the town of Saint-Gildas-de-Rhuys.

The town of Arzon has two seaside resorts of very different characters: Port-Navalo, dating from the early 20C (more in my blog) , and Le Crouesty, modern seaside resort, in constant development since the 1970s and until today, built around the largest marina on the Brittany coast.

The port du Crouesty is a marina created in 1973 on the site of a swampy area located at the entrance of the Gulf of Morbihan on the territory of the town of Arzon. Today the marina, which has been expanded recently, can accommodate 1,500 pleasure boats on pontoons making it the largest marina in Bretagne ( Brittany).
