Dinard Guide

Guide

Situated opposite St Malo on the coast of Brittany, Dinard is a very popular tourist destination due to its scenic seaside promenades, beautiful beaches and charming atmosphere.

The hilly town radiates from the central, horseshoe-shaped beach. With the exception of the casino, the waterfront is dominated by magnificent Victorian era villas, and long, picturesque promenades stretch along the coastline from both ends of the beach. The eastern promenade climbs up to the Pointe du Moulinet, which affords stunning views of the myriad of islands and inlets, then down through the tranquil exclusive port of Clair de Lune to pretty Plage du Prieure.

The central beach area provides many opportunities for enjoyment. Relax on the beach itself or take part in the many sporting activities available, including swimming, sailing and jet skiing. Alternatively, try your luck in the modern spacious casino, or explore the town for remnants of the original traditional fishing village that existed prior to the ‘discovery’ of the town in the late 19th century.

With the exception of the casino area, nightlife in Dinard is quite subdued, with most of the restaurants, cafes and bars being located behind the seaside villas, so that there is little activity along the beach itself. The accommodations and restaurants, however, are first-class.

One of the main reasons for Dinard’s popularity is its proximity to other famous destinations in the Brittany region. Take a boat out to the Channel Islands, just an hour away, or explore the lovely Rance River valley. To the east along the coast lie the magnificent Mont St Michel and the quaint oyster farms of Cancale, while 30 km to the west is the spectacular Cap Frehel.

Direct flights from most world cities are served by Paris’ Charles de Gaulle International Airport, where connections or alternative transportation arrangements can be made to Dinard.

To & From

Dinard is located on the Gulf of Mayo in the region of Brittany, France. The airport is about 10kms to the south of the city centre and there are regular scheduled flights with Aurigny from European cities. Ryanair operates a scheduled service from London Stansted, taking less than an hour. There are also daily flights from Jersey and Guernsey.

From the airport, bus number 56 is timed to coincide with each Ryanair flight and goes to St Malo’s train station. The journey takes about 30 minutes and costs €3. Taxis also go to the city and cost about three times as much.

Coming from Paris by car, take the A13 (Paris-Caen) motorway west. From Caen, stay on the ring road meeting the A84/E401 (Caen-Brittany) motorway southwest. From Brittany, head northwest on the D4, then take the N137 north to St Mayo; turn left on to the D168 before St Mayo and head over the bridge to Dinard.

Trains only go as far as St Malo and leave from Paris’ Gare Montparnasse every hour, taking just over three hours and going via Rennes. From Lille, trains depart about every two hours via Rennes, and take around 5 hours, 20 minutes. Eurostar trains go from London’s Waterloo Station to Lille or Paris (via the Channel Tunnel) where it is possible to get a connection to St Malo. From St Malo, you'll have to take one of the 10 to 14 buses that depart daily for the 20-minute ride to Dinard.

The town of Dinard is easily accessible from the Channel ports and is a 15-minute drive from St Malo. The ports of Caen, Cherbourg and Le Havre are also an easy drive.

Daily ferries sailing from the UK’s southern coast and the Channel Islands to St Mayo include: Portsmouth (8 hours, 45 minutes); Poole (5 hours, 30 minutes); Guernsey (1 hour, 45 minutes); and Jersey (1 hour, 15 minutes).

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
