There is plenty of street parking available but you’ll find that finding a spot in the city centre on a weekend can be a bit trickier than usual. Make sure your hotel in Dinard has parking available to guests before booking.
Road trips from Dinard: what to do, what to see
Brittany’s rocky coastline is incredible, it’s no wonder they call it the Emerald Coast! The rocky coast between St Malo and St Brieuc is dotted with charmingly small fishing villages and bustling summer beach resort towns. You could spend an entire holiday just exploring this area.
Pays de Montfort
For beautiful landscapes and great hiking while in Dinard, take your rental car to Pays de Montford between Rennes and the forest of Brocéliande. The region is dotted with charming historic chapels, churches, abbeys and medieval villages. There are over a dozen hiking “circuits” in the region.
Rennes is the capital of Brittany and a treat to visit while on holidays in Dinard. Be careful driving into the city centre; traffic can be horrid! Park on the outskirts and take the bus in. Enjoy an afternoon in the Thabor Park, tour the parliament and don’t miss the Maison a Colombages.
