Dinard Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 48 photos
North Brittany’s most sophisticated seaside resort. Dinard is located at the top of the Rance River, opposite St-Malo. Until the mid-19th century Dinard was a small fishing port and dependent on the neighbouring parish of Saint Enogat administratively. Although a small port the fishing was important as most of the fishermen sought their catch far away in the seas around Newfoundland. However, the climate, setting and sheltered beaches attracted royal and wealthy families from around Europe. The change in fortunes of Dinard started in about 1850 with the arrival of an English family (Faber); followed quickly by a number of wealthy American families. These arrivals signalled the start of a golden age for Dinard, which lasted until the start of the First World War. Dinard has something for everyone – broad sandy beaches, gardens, parks, a casino and Victorian-Gothic style villas, many now hotels, which overlook the sea.
