Containment, third season. With its certificates, limited travel, reinforced controls … and its access to the beaches. Unlike the first, in March 2020, the State authorizes the French this time to go to the beach to walk, rest, practice nautical activities. Only condition: that the sandbank is less than 10 km from his home as the crow flies.
In this regard, some municipalities are luckier than others. The inhabitants of Brest or Saint-Brieuc are thus spoiled for choice, with no less than ten bodies of water nearby in the 10 km radius. Others, on the contrary, look gray, like the Bretons who live in the land – Châteaulin, Guingamp, etc. – or in Central Brittany, without a salt water body within the authorized perimeter.
In Quimper, the situation is even more frustrating: depending on your location in the city, you may or may not have access to a beach. Those who live near the road to l’Arbre-du-Chapon can go to Kerléven (La Forêt-Fouesnant) or Cap-Coz (Fouesnant). Conversely, all those above Ergué-Armel are deprived of it. But they can fall back on the banks of the Odet. The fine sand in less.
A few meters away …
Sometimes it can be played within a few kilometers. Thus, the inhabitants of Hennebont or Caudan (56) miss the nearest beach of Kernevel (Larmor-Plage) by one kilometer. Or two for the residents of Rosporden (29), when it comes to the beaches of the Bay of the Forest.
In Saint-Denoual (22) or La Boussac (35), access to the beach is prohibited because of the last 800 meters as the crow flies… And not even 100 for the inhabitants of Cast (29) , with Sainte-Anne-la-Palud.
The inhabitants of the island of Molène (29) can, on the other hand, go to the side of Porz ar Lan, in Ushant, to bask. But for those of Locmaria, in Belle-Île (56), it is impossible to get to the beach of Donnant. Again, because of a few hundred meters …
The list of beaches available to you
Precision: the application uses the most central point of each municipality to calculate its radius. Certain beaches may therefore fall within 10 km for certain parts of a territory, in particular on the outskirts, while the application does not display any.
