Bernos-Beaulac is a commune in the Gironde department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwestern France.

The principal settlement in the commune is the village of Beaulac, situated where the route nationale 524 [fr] crosses the Ciron river.

The RN 524 forms part of the Itinéraire à Grand Gabarit, a route which has been modified to allow its use by the oversize road convoys conveying body sections and wings of the Airbus A380 airliner. Major works were required to permit this, including widening of the bridge over the Ciron, reconstructed junctions and the rebuilding of 500 metres (1,600 ft) of road through Beaulac with new pedestrian paths, central islands and lighting.[2]
