Travelers and Activities
The countless wild and romantic beaches along the Charente-Maritimes coast invite you to spend relaxing days by the sea. The Plage de La Palmyre, the Plage Grande Cote and the Plage de Châtelaillon are particularly recommendable here. Those who have had enough of building sand castles and relaxing can devote themselves to various water sports such as windsurfing and stand-up paddling or go on a sea kayaking tour with the family. Hikers and cyclists also get their money's worth thanks to the excellent network of cycle paths and hiking trails. After all, the network of paths across the region takes you to places of interest such as the Aquarium de La Rochelle, the Lilleau Niges nature reserve and the church of St-Eutrope.

The months of May and October are also suitable for pure sightseeing or hiking.
