Mesquer-Quimiac, the ideal holiday destination!
Bike rides through the salt marshes, hiking along the ochre-coloured cliffs, time out for a little tranquil lazing on a long sandy beach, sampling oysters farmed on the spot... Everything in Mesquer-Quimiac leads you back to the ocean that forged its exceptional heritage. Whilst Guérande and La Baule attract holidaymakers for their timeless renown, Mesquer-Quimiac is far more secretive yet hard to beat when it comes to spectacular views. A port of call not to be missed during your camping stay on the Guérande peninsula!
And it’s in this idyllic beauty spot of the Loire-Atlantique that your seaside holiday rental awaits you in a tree-planted campsite just perfect for families. Chalet, mobile home or traditional camping pitch, the choice is yours! Whatever your accommodation, all the advantages of the campsite will be yours to enjoy: covered and heated swimming pool, free entertainment, nearby beach, outdoor sports grounds... This is where your most gorgeous holiday memories can finally begin!
Visit Mesquer-Quimiac with the family
The kids are sandcastle champions? Then head for the Lanséria and Sorlock beaches in Mesquer-Quimiac! In addition to their superb natural setting and the innumerable water-based activities they offer, they also organise a grand sandcastle competition every year. Ready, steady, go... Will you be able to win the cup with the family?
After your picnic, what better to aid digestion than a gentle stroll along the banks of the Traict du Rostu? To the north-east of Mesquer-Quimiac, this magical area sees its water withdraw completely at low tide, before freshwater and that of the ocean mingle once again. A fascinating spectacle to enjoy in addition to a delightful panorama over the Brière Natural Regional Park. What will the kids love most? Admiring the hundreds of migrating birds who also appreciate this haven of tranquillity!
Visit Mesquer-Quimiac as a couple
Wherever you find yourselves along the Mesquer-Quimiac coast, the spectacle is always grandiose. But if there is one place that is even more magical and where romance is forever in the air, it’s the Merquel headland, the northernmost tip of Mesquer-Quimiac. Follow us!
Just opposite that of Pen Bé, there’s no doubt that the Merquel headland offers the most beautiful viewpoint to gaze out over the ocean, on a clear day you can just make out Quiberon in the distance. Hand-in-hand, set off along the 10km circular walk that will take you to the pretty port of Kercabellec, then on through the heart of the Le Mès salt marshes before you finally reach the tip of the Merquel headland. With luck you’ll arrive just in time to admire the sunset over the ocean. Sublime!
