Walk Instructions

Turn left a short distance before the church along a minor road which, after a roundabout in just over 1 mile, passes under the main D785, becoming the D144. Stay with the D144 for more than 2 miles to a junction at a roundabout by a Super U store. Turn left towards Bénodet and the great Pont de Cornouaille. At the roundabout turn right to Saint Marine in 2 miles. The road winds through the built-up area, passes behind the port (don’t take the first car park on your left) travels along rue du Phare into rue des Glénan and teminates at the Pointe de Combrit.

Head for the car park entrance. This is part of the GR 34. To the left is a former Napoleonic fort, now used for leisure activities. Turn right, along a gravel footpath heading for a redundant lighthouse and the estuary. Turn left and evenutally go down a few steps and bear left along the rocky foreshore, in due course (it takes a little while to reach the gardens) passing public gardens and a small sandy beach, Bénodet is well seen across the water. Turn left along a public road (red and white GR waymark on a pole). Turn right in 40 yards into a footpath between properties, soon joining a residential road. Turn right and carry on to a more important road. Turn right again (waymark) and follow the roadside to St Marine Chapel, perched above the port.

1. Turn right and walk down to the port, now used solely by recreational craft. Bear left then right to walk to the Café du Cale. At the far end of the café turn left, up steps, to reach a public road. Turn right to follow the road and when it ends continue straight on along an avenue of trees until it joins the main road. Turn right for 200 yards.

2. Turn left at the Route de Béréven (yellow waymark), a very minor surfaced access road. Ignore turnings to right and left. In less than ½ mile, after a sharp left bend, turn right in 50 yards at the near side of a house to follow a gently descending track. Turn sharp right at a ditch/bank, soon joining a minor surfaced road and bending left to cross a public road. Carry on along a well shaded track, entering a ‘site naturelle protégé’. Pass a vehicular barrier then cross a wide straight equestrian track to reach a three way junction.

3. The basic route goes straight on at the 3 way junction, to reach an equestrian farm, Roscanvel.

4. Before the buildings turn left (little sign) to head for Kerlorgant, through deciduous woodland, passing a boggy area and over a little bridge to join a minor public road. Turn left for 250 yards to walk to a road junction, turning left again and passing a holiday village. In another 250 yards turn right. There is a recently renovated farm opposite and a ‘walkers’ road sign. The track leads past a tennis court, then left at a junction to pass more tennis courts, becoming a fine woodland track heading purposefully towards the coast. Cross a bridge over a stream, now very much in the ‘polder’ land. Go straight ahead at a cross paths to join a wider path and a road, close to a sailing club.

5. Turn left to follow GR 34 which stays just behind the Plage du Teven and the contiguous Plage de Kermor for nearly 2 miles. There are frequent accesses to the beach through the banking and tree screen; many walkers might prefer to walk along the sand. Inland is a nature reserve including areas of very wet ‘polder’ land.

6. Towards the far end of the beach, pass a car park with public conveniences and bear right to an initially sandy track which stays just above the beach and then the rocks as it winds its way most attractively back to the Point.
