Lighthouses

Bénodet, with its exceptional location between the river and the ocean, boasts two lighthouses.

Pyramide Lighthouse and Coq Lighthouse

The Pyramide LighthouseBuilt in 1872, 48 metres high, the lighthouse takes its name from a pyramid of stones, used in alignment with a rock in the shape of a cockerel. Like all the lighthouses in Brittany, it has been automated since 1993. Moreover, it is visible from the Glénan archipelago, 20 km from the mainland!

Overlooking the bay, the emblem of the seaside resort, it offers walkers one of the most beautiful panoramas of Bénodet.

Coq Lighthouse

 

Located at the mouth of the Odet river, it owes its name to a rock. This rock stood until the end of the 1960s. From a certain angle it reminded the profile of a cockerel. The rock has now disappeared.

During a walk along the estuary ledge, walkers can admire it and get close to it. The view from this point allows you to contemplate the cove of Bénodet.

In addition, a children’s garden is located at the foot of the lighthouse for the pleasure of parents and their children. What a pleasure to be able to play with a view of the sea!
