Camping Escale St Gilles*****
Overview of Escale St Gilles
Escale St Gilles is an exceptional site set directly opposite a sandy beach and close to the bustling resort of Bénodet. This is a lively site with impressive facilities including an exciting pool complex and relaxing wellness centre.
Most of the emplacements here are grassy and are divided by trees and tall hedges, which provide privacy, shade and plenty of space for children to play. The friendly atmosphere of the bar is a good place to relax in the evening and throughout the season you can join in with the entertainment programme, which caters for families of all ages. Venture off site to explore the hidden coves and rock pools which adorn this rugged coastline.
Escale St Gilles is just a twenty minute walk along the coast from Bénodet, where you will find a yacht harbour and a delightful town with cafés and restaurants. There is a small and sandy beach opposite the site and two others within walking distance.
Take a boat trip to the Glénan Isles from Bénodet, while there join a glass bottom boat trip from the isle of Saint-Nicolas. Océanopolis is a vast aquarium and sea life centre located in Brest. It is the main research centre in France for marine life - there are thousands of varieties of fish and sea life including sharks and penguins.
