Carnac, a lot more than stones!!!

Yes, indeed, this is just south of me and many times there since coming to this wonderfully beautiful Morbihan dept 56 of the region of Bretagne. The title says it all, the town is Unesco for its megaliths ancient stones , but we go there for more and it has more. Let me update this older post for you, one of the earlier ones on Carnac. This August morning was another nice sunny hot day at around 28°C so we headed again for the beach, here you need to take advantage of each hour because the rentrée or coming back from vacation to work is soon, and then autumn and winter approaches. Carnac plage or beach is 25 minutes from my house.

We go by car, and past always by Carnac Ville, the town away from the beach where the Church of St Cornély is located by the museum of history and archeology both already visited and nice for the whole family.

However, the main reason for us to come here is the beach and the quant restos all along the beach at the section call Carnac Plage or Carnac Beach, which is about 2 km from Carnac Ville.  All along Bd de l’Océan ,bd de Légénes, and bd de la Plage. Parking on the street is all along these boulevards.

We went to le men du beach or plage where the ilot or little island can be enjoy and did on low tide like today, we frolic with volleyball, football/soccer on the Grande Plage or big beach.

We ate fine and lean at La Peche Mignon bakery ,57 Avenue des Druides  ; with formula of sandwich, dessert and soda for 9 euros per person, and then cross the street to L’Igloo, 56 avenue des Druides ,for four scoops of ice cream of different flavors (choices for all!) for 5€ per person. Therefore, the combination of food, desserts and drinks came to 14€ per person! Great family deal at a popular place!

We visited some businesses just for update for the blog as we do shop there often, and recommend to all, such as:

La Belle Illoise, fish canning goodies ,77 Avenue des Druides.

La Trinitaine, biscuits Breton cakes and local products,  76 avenue des Druides.

We do recommend these other places for food,and drinks:

La Tour de Pise, for great pizzas, 19 avenue Miln.

La Luna Park, great for kids, and cybercafe at 29 Avenue Miln.

Planete Junior, great amusement park for kids,its part of luna park but this one can be rented for birthdays etc, and great rides amusement style at 50 bis avenue des Druides.

You have two nice galleries or shopping center small to do shopping here ,our favorites are Galerie Rahd Côet at  56 ave des Druides. Another nice shopping area is the Passage de la Fontaine.

In all a wonderful day at Carnac as usual. We invite you to come and say hello lol!!!  And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
