Boater’s paradise of La Trinité sur Mer !!!

I was back with my family today to a familiar place seeking something to do on Assomption Day in my belle France, The beaches were pack to say the least and trafic galore, we skip along to avoid as much as possible and enjoy our day in the boater’s paradise of La Trinité sur Mer !

This is a wonderful heavens and boater’s paradise about 26 Km ( 16 miles) from my house. Weekends specially in good weather is glorious to have it as your backyard, even in winter . Not to mention the whole of the coastal department 56 of my beautiful  Morbihan in my lovely Bretagne. I have several posts on the town in my blog over the years, one of our fav areas ; however, this is new text and pictures.

La Trinité sur Mer has developed its port afloat, which is today one of the main marinas in Brittany, The port of La Trinité-sur-Mer can be admired from the top of the Pont de Kerisper which crosses the Crac’h river on more of 200 meters. A real open-air museum where sailboats, speedboats and yachts of all origins and of all sizes rub shoulders.

La Trinité-sur-Mer is the third port in Bretagne and the fifth on the Atlantic coast. Its privileged location at the bottom of an estuary allows it to accommodate moored multihulls during their preparation for races around the world. It is one of the most important regatta places in Europe. Indeed, the city is particularly renowned for its nautical competitions. Its small fishing and sailing port is a popular stopover for internationally renowned boaters and skippers who have made it their home port.  Its exceptional geographical location allows it to organize very beautiful regattas in the Bay of Quiberon as well as deep-sea races along the coasts of southern Brittany and around the Ponant Islands.

The city of La Trinité sur Mer on its ports and nautical activities

The official port of La Trinité sur Mer :

 On the subject of beaches, well here you have some of the best in all of Brittany,and one of my favorite is the beach of Plage du Men Dû.  A wonderful corner of my world , the Plage du Men-dû is a sandy beach and is shallow. It is the joy of bathers at high tide, and the joy of waders and fishermen on foot at low tide. In the center, overlooks the Ïle de Stuhan or island of. At low water, this islet is connected to the earth by a strip of sand, called a tombolo. Lots of fun indeed !!

If you love the sea and I do, and boating and I do and all related to the sea including scuba diving, then you must come to La Trinité sur Mer. A must for the nautically incline as I.

Ah well been in town all day, needed to eat, and on Assomption Day, which was created in 1638, Louis XIII consecrated the Kingdom of France to the Virgin Mary, thus establishing the great processions of August 15 which still take place today. I chose a new place just out of whim which is my best shots. We had our late lunch at Le Britannia brasserie restaurant right on facing the marina. Even on this day, we had no reservations, just show up 5 persons one on wheelchair and in we went to the back. I must say the place quickly filled up and service was a bit slow but very friendly and nice. I had my Salmon with black rice and stew vegetables, my tiramisubreizh or a Breton caramelise version of the tiramisu, all wash down with two bottles of brut cider Sorre. The other had different dishes all for less than 22 euros nice quality/price ratio indeed, and we will be back.
