Since October 2019, the town of Saint-Lunaire has been awarded “greenest small town in France” and proves that it is possible to run a town sustainably and ecologically.
Saint-Lunaire is a green town! The city has put in place actions for protection of nature areas and inland spaces: ponds, birds’ passages, birdhouses, and forest regeneration.
On the shoreline, marine debris collectors are installed by the beach, tide wrack is preserved, anchorages are environmentally friendly, and the Longchamp sand dune is a protected nature area.
A biodiversity charter has been written for the inhabitants and offers tips for everyone who wishes to be part of those actions, and publishes “wanted notices” for endangered or rare species.
It is the ideal perfect town for cycling with children, thanks to new bike lanes.
“Pavillon Bleu” (Blue Flag) is an environmental and touristic label attributed every year since 1985, to eco-friendly towns and marinas. In 2020, two of Saint-Briac’s beaches got the label: Grande Salinette and Port-Hue.
Sustainable mobility is an important part of the process, and especially walking and cycling. Every year, new bike racks and pedestrian paths are installed. In order to avoid traffic near the beaches, a free shuttle operates in the summer.
The GR34 coast path, also called “the coast guards path” is certainly one of the most famous in France. It has been awarded “The French’s favourite GR path” in 2017.
Come and see the many nature areas: Pointe du Nick in Saint-Lunaire, Pointe de la Garde Guérin in Saint-Briac-sur-Mer and the bays of Lancieux… Bird lovers will love to come to Dinard Côte d’Émeraude to watch marine birds and migratory birds.
Finally, the mild climate favours flourishing vegetation.
Schedule your route and make a few stops on the way. Go back to your starting point thanks to the bus lines operating along the coast.
Tourism professionals are committed for the planet, such as EVORIDE, a kite-surfing school.
