With a huge variety of coastal, river and lake settings, Brittany offers almost limitless possibilities for watersports. Beginners can meander in a kayak or take an introductory sailing course from any one of the numerous sailing schools in the area. Experienced surfers can discover the best spots for waves and perhaps try a kite buggy on the beach. For leisurely cruises by barge, sail or canoe, start at Redon, the meeting point of the Rivers Oust and Vilaine and the Nantes-Brest Canal. Or if you prefer dry land, the towpaths are great for walking and cycling.
