Located in the Pays des Abers Natura 2000 zone, the Corn ar Gazel dunes are accessible via a number of paths that extend to the beaches of Lampaul-Ploudalmézeau and Saint-Pabu. Ile du Bec, Ile de Rosservo, Ile Trévors, Ile Garo... A stroll through the dunes offers an overview of the Pays des Abers coastline and its turquoise waters. From here, the coves, dunes and sandy beaches of the Sainte-Marguerite peninsula will hold no more secrets for you!

Dunes and beaches

Although much of the stonework has disappeared, a main chamber can still be seen, separated from a cell by a bedside slab.
Polished axes and arrowheads dating from the Neolithic and Bronze Age have been found here.

Cale du passeur

L'Aber Benoît: Its name comes from a mistranslation of the Breton "aber-beniguet", meaning "blessed aber". It runs for 31 km. The tide flows up the Aber Be-noît for around 10 km to the Tariec mill. At the beginning of the 20th century, there were over a hundred mills along its banks. Oyster-farming is a thriving industry here, and the belon des Abers is well known for its oysters.
