Neighborhoods of Fouesnant-les-Glénan

Fouesnant has also preserved its age-old traditions, such as the traditional Fête des Pommiers, held in July each year, with its regional cider and apple juice competition. There’s also the “Ar pintiged Foen” Celtic circle, and the “oven festival” dedicated to old-fashioned bread-making at the Kerbader chapel! In depth, Cap Coz is the neighborhood that adjoins the town center and slopes down to the sea. This seafront has become a residential area with a long sandy beach facing the bay of La Forêt-Fouesnant. This long spit of land is also home to a mudflat rich in rare birds (grey herons, terns, brant geese…) that attracts keen birdwatchers!

Another satellite district of Fouesnant is the tourist resort of Beg-Meil. A vacation spot for the wealthy bourgeoisie during the XXᵉ century, this neighborhood has preserved its authentic character. The calm of the resort in winter contrasts with the liveliness of the summer season, when Fouesnant’s most touristy district welcomes large numbers of holidaymakers.

To the east of the point that bears its name, Mousterlin. Until the beginning of the XXᵉ century, a dune cordon separated the Fouesnant marsh from the sea. The dyking concession granted to an industrialist in 1926 resulted in the creation of a polder covering some 120 hectares. Although the aim was to increase the agricultural surface area of the commune of Fouesnant, seawater continues to enter, creating a lagoon where both marine and freshwater fish come to reproduce. The Mousterlin polder has been owned by the Conservatoire du Littoral since 1982.
