Why choose Charente Maritime?
Charente-Maritime- Exploring the Coast
Families love to head to the resort of La Palmyre with its sheltered beaches and coves, where little ones can swim safely in the calm bay. Further around the coast, the Côte Sauvage is the surfers’ spot where you can work up an appetite catching the crashing waves. A stroll along St Palais is perfect in the evening sun for a relaxing meal overlooking the sea, rocks and ‘King of Lights’ (the Lighthouse of Cordouan). One of the most beautiful seaside beaches can be found at Les Sables d'Olonne, which offers beautiful views of blue green waters, fine white sand, fragranced with salty sea air and grilled seafood. At dusk, sit on the beach and take in the breathtaking night sky.
