Bad experience
Aug 2020
OK. the city and the port is nice and you can park easily in the area.
But once you walked less than one hours this is pretty much it.
If you wish to bike, no way. They have not done anything....
If you try to go along the treauray river: on the left from the port, the path is blocked and not allowed for bike.
If you try on the right of the river, auray side, then after a while the path is private and you cannot pursue.
The only way to bike there is to take the big road in the middle of the cars. I better use my car if I have to travel around cars.

Beautiful, historical port
Sep 2019
We had visited Port de St Goustan at Auray about 20 years ago and were impressed with its quaintness and beauty. Coming back to Carnac this year we just had to see if it had changed. The quai is very much as we remember it except that it appears to be wider further down and traffic is now restricted by entrance-controlled bollards, I assume, for traders.
It is still a lovely place for a summer’s day or evening visit, cobbled streets leading down to the quai from the top car-park, a picturesque cobbled quayside, restaurants, cafés and of course the colourful boats. Also, if you have the time, cross the bridge and climb the zig-zag to the top of the old ramparts for a lovely high-level view over the port. While we there there was a pretty book market on the quai-side. We also appreciated the number of plagues giving historical information especially the one on Benjamin Franklin who landed at St Goustan and who the quai is named after.
We found the free cark park further along the quai away from the centre and it meant that we had a lovely walk back to the square which we would probably have missed.
There are plenty of cafés, bars and restaurants, both in the main square and further along, for both eating, drinking and especially people watching. To get the full advantage you have to be choosy dependant on time of day, position of the sun and whether the establishment has restrictions on where you can sit if you are not dining.

A Beautiful Small Port
Aug 2019
This is a wonderful place to visit. It is charming and full of history. Lots of little restaurants or you can just sit alongside the river or bridge and people watch. Try to make it up the hill so you can look down and see the wonderful view of the whole area

Very enjoyable visit with dog

Lovely place to stroll around, attractive houses and restaurants, plenty of restaurants to choose from for a very pleasant lunch. Street entertainers when we visited (July). Possible to walk alongside water edge. Saw a pleasure boat so this may be possible also but unsure. Highly recommended.

Stunning Location
May 2019 • Family
After visiting Auray town centre, took a walk down to the Port St Goustan. Despite the moans of my daughter, when we got to the port, the views of the bridge and the buildings around going up the hills, was well worth the effort.

Wonderful Old Port
May 2019 • Solo
Beautiful old port and village at the base of the city of Auray. Old houses line the small hill just behind the port that adds a great feel for a wonderful day. Take the time to explore the old city and imagine life here centuries ago.
