Go to Hirel and discover or rediscover sand yachting on the Mont-Saint-Michel bay, near Saint-Malo!

Thanks to this 1h sand yacht activity on the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, you will be able to learn how to handle the sand yacht and discover the Hirel beach, near the Mont-Saint-Michel. The bay of Mont-Saint-Michel is an emblematic place, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site! It is along this bay that you will find the beach of Hirel, between Saint-Malo and the Mont-Saint-Michel. This large stretch of sand is a perfect place to practice sand yachting in Brittany.

Our partner Avel Char à Voile welcomes you on the Hirel beach, 15 minutes from Saint-Malo, to try this sailing sport with your family or friends. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced sailor, the activity will allow you to have a good time in your sand yacht on the beach of Hirel. You will start the activity with a briefing by a professional instructor. He will explain the handling of the sand yacht: propulsion and direction, stopping, safety rules, manoeuvres facing the wind and back to the wind. You will then set off with your glider on a marked course, while your instructor will remain available to advise you. From the very first minutes, pushed by the wind, you will immediately feel the sensation of speed on the ground!

Under the guidance of the Avel Char à Voile instructor, you will quickly understand how to handle the tank thanks to the wind. Sand yachting is a sport that is accessible even to the youngest, who can join an adult on a two-seater sand yacht. This easy handling will make you want to go further and go even further, reach even more speed and discover even more places to go sand yachting!

So don't wait any longer! Whatever your level, go sand yachting in Hirel, on the Mont-Saint-Michel bay!

It was a good learning about making use of the wind for sailing.

It would have been amazing if we could go around the beach in exploration but it’s been fantastic to just follow the track

We did this for my husband who was in his youth a wind surfer. At 73 he had not lost his touch and took to sand yachting like a pro.
