Sables-d'Or-les-Pins is a French Seaside resort, located mainly in Fréhel commune in the Côtes-d'Armor department in Brittany in northwestern France.
It was created in 1921 and is known for its long beach located along a spit and its dunes.
Roland Brouard, the initiator of the project, intended to create a competitor to resorts like Deauville and La Baule.
In 1929, as a consequence of the Great Depression, the development of the resort stopped.
After World War II, Sables d'Or became a quiet family beach.
