Concarneau is one of the main touristic resorts in Brittany, with nice beaches and many opportunities for water sports. Sailing is pretty big in the region, with a few of the most famous sailing schools in the neighborhood, so Concarneau can be a good hub if you want to learn or improve your skills at this demanding, and rewarding sport.

This historical town has also a lot to offer to the amateur of old buildings, being a enclosed harbour with most of the original granite house still in place. Excursions to the cosy fishing village of Pont Labbe which inspired many painters a few centuries ago can be easily organized, either by bike or public transportation. You can also plan day trips to some of the cute and traditional churches in the neighbourhood. The staff at your Concarneau hostel can offer you their advice and recommend their favourite chapels. Concarneau can easily be reached by public transportation (with a regular bus line from the nearest train station).

The city has also one of the most popular folkloric festivals in Brittany, ‘les filets bleus’ (the blue nets) to commemorate the historical fishing tradition of the place, when the nets were so full of sardines, that they ended up becoming blue. This event is not to be missed if you are in the area at the time, with many dancers and traditional musicians invading the cobbled streets and squares.

Concarneau is very popular during the summer month so make sure you book your room in your favorite hostel in Concarneau well in advance since the number of beds available is limited.
