Beyond sensational seafood, you can relax on sandy beaches, stroll around the charming village and dine al fresco in the lively waterfront district.
Things to do in La Trinité-sur-Mer
La Trinite-sur-Mer wraps around a natural harbour filled with luxury yachts and sailboats. Historic buildings overlook the harbour and house atmospheric bars and bistros. Sit down for excellent seafood accompanied by beautiful views. Oysters are the order of the day and best enjoyed sauteed and served with pepper, lemon and shallots. It’s hard to resist pairing your meal with a glass of Muscadet dry white wine or a refreshing Rosé d'Anjou.
A short walk up the hill takes you to the charming village centre, which features narrow lanes lined with shopfronts and cottages. La Trinite-sur-Mer hums with activity in the spring when it hosts one of the biggest sailing regattas in Europe. The action continues well into the summer as sun-seeking sailors descend on the Bay of Quiberon.
Top up your tan on Plage de Kervillen. The beach is sheltered from the wind and features a strip of golden sand. Plage du Men-Du is another popular stretch of sand. At low tide, you can walk out to Ile de Stuhan, a sandy island just offshore. On the southern tip of the peninsula is Plage du Ty Guard, an uncrowded beach with a rocky shoreline. Relax on the sand and watch sailboats cruise in and out of the estuary.
