No I didn't take a boat with us as we are kayakers, but hoping to buy a boat next year.

I have trailered down to the Morhibian a few times and the best place we have found is called Port de Crouesty. It's on the peninsula which juts out to encircle the Golfe de Morhibian. This year we took a small room in the Pierre et Vacances site (holiday apartments) which is less than 2 minutes down to the marina which was perfect, and there is a good slip and trailer park all there.

We visited a number of places along the coast there, regardless of boat size there is a huge amount to see.

I do know that 'Trevor G' used to spend a lot of time in the area, at a place called La Turballe I think where I think there is a campsite very close to where you can moor the boat.

What size of boat are you taking, obviously trailer size etc makes a big difference

I've been to Benodet several times - unfortunately not with the boat - though i'd love to.

As other have said Benodet is a lovely little town, with great estuary and coast to explore. lots of good beaches and fishing

Two places to launch I know of:
1) the slip in Benodet itself - wide and accessible at pretty much any state of tide, although parking may be an issue.

Slip/ beach launch al Letty - there's a fee car park right by the beach. This is tidal.

There's also a marina at Benodet, so maybe keeping the boat a float might be an option an save on launch & recovery everyday.

Various campsites / parks around. Point St Giles has some pitches where there's enough room to park a boat & trailer, and a large car park just by the office/ reception.

Enjoy!
