    A bit of history on the Bon Secours swimming pool ...

    Its history goes back to the 1930s. During the period between the wars, seaside activities were booming. The beaches were always full. At that time, three bathing establishments shared the Beach of Bon Secours. In the center was the "Bains René" office, managed by René Lesaunier. This manager was very concerned about the comfort of his customers, and brimming with ideas. It was he who was the first to install showers connected to the city network so that bathers can rinse. He also had the idea of ​​attaching sun visors to his sun loungers. But his ideas were quickly taken up by his competitors.

    The "Bains René" were very appreciated by the customers. His only problem: the periods of high tides during which the sea retreated too far, and during which his regulars went to bathe at the pool of Dinard.

    René Lesaunier had the idea of ​​having a seawater swimming pool built, allowing his guests to swim around the clock. The swimming pool was built during the year 1937. René Lesaunier did not fail to specify that the water of his swimming pool was renewed twice a day, at each tide; unlike that of Dinard which was only at each high tide ...

    Ideal for swimming, it is a family beach. It has a summer aid station.
