Lesconil is only a few kilometres from the Loctudy Les Hortensias campsite and a quarter of an hour by bike will be enough to get you to this small port typical of the Bigouden coast. This village is a little gem that you will love to discover while strolling along the quays. Formerly a coastal fishing port, it now turns towards yachting, welcoming sailing boats to the pontoons in place of the many trawlers still in operation 10 years ago. The small inshore fishing still has a few craftsmen who sell their catch daily at the quayside for direct sale.
The lively terraces of Lesconil's bars and restaurants make it a pleasant place to stroll and relax. The Wednesday morning market on rue des Equipages, around the port, attracts many visitors. During the summer season a night market around the port also brings together many local craftsmen and traders.
Port city and family beaches
Lesconil is an authentic and picturesque port on the Finistère coast and also offers wonderful beaches to discover for swimming and sunbathing. The beautiful beach of Les Sables Blancs between Lesconil and Loctudy stretches over 2 kilometres at the foot of a dune ridge and ends at the tip of Beg Gwen at the mouth of the Ster. This natural area is well preserved and offers a refuge for birds on the mudflat. Les Sables Blancs beach is a pleasant site for a family day at the beach. The relief is flat and offers a wide playground on the foreshore at low tide. It is a beach where you can practise water sports such as windsurfing, paddle, kitsurfing or take a catamaran course at the Centre Nautique de Plein Air de Lesconil.
Don't miss the famous Langoustine Festival in August in the port of Lesconil.
